Thessaloniki 49 | Pandora’s Box by Yeşim Ustaoğlu

Pandora’s Box / Yeşim Ustaoğlu

When three forty-something siblings in Istanbul receive a call one night that their aging mother has disappeared from her home at the western Black Sea coast of Turkey, the three set out to find her, momentarily setting aside their problems. As the siblings come together, the tensions between them quickly become apparent, like Pandora’s box spilling open. They come to realize that they know very little about each other and are forced to reflect on their own shortcomings.
