When the Persimmons Grew

Synopsis

Immobile in a forever-outdated house, where the sands of time fall to the rhythm of rural Azerbaijani sounds, a mother waits for her son. When he arrives, their conversations circle around existential questions and news from afar, troubling and cryptic. Unrest cloaks the world outside. Mother and son grow closer, and renewed life springs between them.
