Main Program

Your Beauty Is Worth Nothing / Huseyin Tabak

A 12-year-old boy – half Kurd, half Turk – arrives in a foreign country. At school he doesn’t speak the language; at home there is tension caused by a conflict in the family. His only happy moments are when he thinks about Ana. Ana is a girl in his class with whom he is head over heels in love. Just when the clash between real life and his dreamworld seems to be getting the best of him, he meets his neighbor, a 33-year-old macho man with a shattered love life who becomes his first friend in this new country.
