Mommo Kiz kardesim / Mommo The Bogeyman (2009) DVD9
Mommo is the story of a boy and his sister who live in Turkey and whose mother has died, but the father won’t take them into the home he now shares with his new wife and her children. They live now with their aged grandfather, a man whose poor health makes it difficult for him to look after them yet who is determined to save them from being sent to a children's home, where they would probably be separated. The villagers are sympathetic and try to help, though their children bully and jeer. An aunt wants to take Ahmet and Ayse to Germany, but everything is complicated by rules which seem to take no account of their desperate situation. In the meantime, Ahmet has become a sort of surrogate parent to his little sister, trying to create a safe space in which she can still experience childhood - even if it's at the expense of his own.
