61 DAYS

SYNOPSIS

Set in 1970s Turkey, Adem is a brilliant and hard-working 5th grader who lives in one of the peaceful and relaxed Aegean towns. Refusing to spend his summer idle, he quarrels with his family about becoming an apprentice to soda seller Cibar Kemal. He finally wins and starts as soda seller’s apprentice. It’s the beginning of Ramadan and when the local imam gives a sermon on fasting, it makes a deep impression on him. Added to this, his childhood crush, Berna will also be fasting. He decides to fast secretly from his family who is against his fasting because of his young age. But fasting on hot Aegean summer days while selling soda will not be easy. As if that weren’t hard enough, he learns that to break the fast intentionally would require an extra 61 days of fasting as penance and Berna is fasting too! Thirst and hunger hardly tire him up and he starts to see hallucinations.
