As Night Falls

In a hill village far from sight, the rainfall intensifies day after day and causes power outage. In a village house that’s facing a lake and surrounded by greenery, the days have gotten hard and the dilapidated mudbrick wall in the backyard has gotten weaker each day. The wall causes uneasiness in the house. Though the mother finds things to be happy about in this uncanny place, the mudbrick wall is always on her mind. Father’s plans about the wall always get delayed in some ways. The suggestions of the mother are not effective on the father either. Meanwhile, the only child of the house, İlyas, finds a new friend when he plays near the house and bonds with them. As the night comes, the heavy rain will be the harbinger of many things.
