Levan Akin’s fourth feature film, following the acclaimed and controversial And Then We Danced, tells the story of Lia, a retired Georgian teacher who sets off on a journey to Turkey to fulfill her recently deceased sister’s last wish: to find her long lost niece Tekla. Accompanied by her neighbour, Achi, Lia discovers that the beautiful city of Istanbul is full of connections and possibilities. But searching for someone who never intended to be found is harder than they expected – until they meet Evrim, a lawyer fighting for trans rights. As Lia and Achi weave their way through the city’s backstreets, Tekla starts to feel closer than ever.
