My Sweet Pepper Land


After Saddam Hussein's fall, Baran, a Kurdish hero, becomes the police commander in the remote village of Khwakork, located in the border triangle between Turkey and Iraq. Khwakork is a hub of illegal trade, isolated and snowbound for six months a year, accessible only by horse. Despite resistance, a school has recently opened in the village. Govend, a teacher, arrives, facing opposition from her twelve brothers. Baran strives to establish law and order, but the villagers resist, rejecting both the school and his authority. Govend, however, dreams of love in this challenging and lawless environment.
