In this dark comedy, three siblings are urgently called by their estranged father to visit him in their home village. Cemal (Tolga Tekin) is an bitter astronaut in Germany, upset with the poor state of space exploration. Kenan (Bartu Küçükçağlayan) is a struggling actor whose career has dropped to the level of dubbing cat videos, and the youngest (Tuğçe Altuğ) wants to leave her husband. Upon the trio’s arrival, they learn of their father’s death and are instructed by his will to bury him “when butterflies come,” which refers to a fairytale that their mother used to tell them. Winner of the World Cinema Grand Jury Prize at the Sundance Film Festival.
