Ambitious Adem (Berat Efe Parlar) is a young boy living with his family in Ula, Turkey, in the 1970s. With school finished, Adem wants to work on his summer vacation and ends up getting a job selling soda pop with a vendor (Cem Yilmaz) during Ramadan. Even though children are not allowed to fast during the holy holiday, Adem secretly takes on the practice while working on the job. Consequently, he experiences moments of delirium (with animation) as he pedals the soda cart in the scorching summer.

This charming comedy/drama, featuring a variety of ethnic music, richly portrays the cultural habits of rural villagers in southwestern Turkey in the 1970s. Winner of the Audience Award at the 2016 Adana Film Festival.
