Body

Jan, a young man raised in New York City, is moved by the song his ailing grandmother sings to him on her deathbed. She remembers a dream she had, of a terrible massacre she witnessed as a child. After her death, Jan travels to where she grew up in the Kurdish heartland in search of the truth behind the song she sang. His journey takes him deep into his own unknown heritage, revealing sad, fiercely-hidden truths and the meaning of what she left behind. An enigmatic, lyrical and moving meditation on the scars of a troubled region, with beautiful cinematography and mystical undertones.
