She has an entire night ahead of her to make a new beginning. On this night she chooses to return to her roots, to Kerasounta in Pontos. In a lonely coffee shop, sitting across from her Turkish cousin Serhat and sinking into his blue eyes so similar to those of her grandmother’s, Sultana waits for darkness to fall so that, with the present as her guide, she may begin her descent into times, happenings and people gone by, shards of history, memories and feelings. She hopes that with the sunrise a new day will dawn for her. The night time turned back, the night she turned fifty and the second half of her life began, she met with her past and became free. Raised by her grandmother in a small tobacco village near Kavala, a place of shelter for refugees from the Pontos, she carries the burden of her family’s displacement as well as a family secret that prevents her from living her life uninhibited and free. A girl’s braid and a crime in modern Athens will be the reason for an old rusty biscuit box to be opened. An unforgettable journey through the history of a people who holds onto the memory of its lost homeland and, at the same time, the portrait of a modern woman who finds the strength to carve her own path in life and succeeded in… turning back time.
