Namme

Synopsis

Director

Ali’s family has inherited a mission – taking care of a local healing water and curing sick fellow villagers with it. Three sons are skeptical and only the young daughter Namme stays as the guardian of family traditions.

In parallel, a hydro power station is being constructed locally and environmental changes are at stakes.

One day the spring water starts to disappear. Father remembers the old tradition: the water will not return unless sacrifice is made…
