In the shadow of the military coup in 1980, these children aged 12-13, playing their childish games soon arrive at an understanding of life's responsibilities and are hastily introduced into the world of the grownups. On the thin line between the good and the bad, right and wrong, past and future, Serhat, Gurbuz and Ibo embark innocently on a struggle they find just. That winter finding coal is an issue every household has in common in the poor neighborhood. For the children returning from play after school, their houses are no different than the freezing cold outside. Despite queuing up in front of the coal depot every morning together with grownups, they return empty handed. (IMBb)
