Are You Listening Mother?

A Kurdish woman is sentenced to six years of house arrest. The charge: supporting terrorist
activities. Now an invisible border runs through her garden in a Turkish village, which she
repeatedly crosses. Her older son is torn between obedience and rebellion. How far will he
go to protect her from further punishment?
