Leaving the Small Town

Genre: Drama, Short

over it, it won't break.

They only die if you

leave them upside down.

They can't turn

themselves over again.

- Shall I ride on it, too?

- Allright, but be careful.

Come on, move.

Come on.

It is slippery.

It really is strong.

Won't it poke its head out?

Won't it poke its legs out?

- If it forgets about you it might.

- How can it forget about me?

You must stand still

for a long time.

A thorn pricked me.

Couldn't you find a better place

than the grave to place it on?

Stop fidgeting.

It won't come out then.

Don't move.

What was that?

- A rifle.

Father. They are coming.

Where have you been? You

have lost track of time again.

We met a hunter by the

cemetery. He knows father.

- That must be Huseyin.

He hunts blackbirds there.

What he wants with those tiny birds

I will never understarstand.

Didn't I tell you to come

up directly. It is nearly dark.

Don't trample

the corn, child.

Come round the other way. You'll

get shot one day.

But we cross the field

without trempling the maize.

Don't exaggerate.

Nothing will happen.

You never know son.

Corn fields are dangerous.

On just such an evening

as this, ismail from...

Torhasan was lying

in wait for wild boar and...

when he heard a rustling

sound he pulled to trigger.

He looked. It was

Kasirahmet's son.

He was seriously injured

and died on the way to the hospital.

You should avoid the fields.

He was the same age as Ali.

You should stick to the road.

Has the tailor finished my trousers?

- Yes. -Good.

- It's 50 lira. -What?

- He says he wants 50 lira.


Did you have the hems put up?

- Yeah.

Let him give me 50 lira,

and he can keep the trouser.

All he did was turn up the

legs and let out the waist.

Goodness gracious!

You can't get anything

altered anymore.
