The child’s voice is Özmen’s son Robin. Heis vocalising his thoughts in Turkish, a languagehe learned after Kurdish, his mothertongue. Revisiting his father’s childhood, he has collected memories. And yet, he believes in peace. He takes the clueless dove seriously, talking with it sincerely and openly. Robin is the future.
