THE HALF (YARIM)   Directed by Çağıl Nurhak Aydoğdu

​​Beautiful 15-year old shepherd girl Fidan lives with her father and siblings in a mountainous village in eastern Turkey. In exchange for money she is married off to the son of a family they don’t know, at the other end of the country. After a long journey, Fidan will meet her husband-to-be, Salih, who is mentally challenged and at the age of 35 is even younger than her. Thrust into what at first glance seems a tragic marriage, these two yet unformed, half-people slowly open up to each other, united by the same feeling of loneliness and detachment from the world of the adults.
