East Coast Premiere

Lemonade | Limonata

Lemonade is a fun road film that recounts the similarities, differences, and disputes between two brothers from different cultures who have just met. Suat, a former truck driver who lives in Macedonia, is on his deathbed. He has a last request, which he puts to his son, Sakıp: to find and bring him Selim, Suat’s son from a previous, religious marriage, so Sakıp’s half-brother, from Istanbul. Sakıp hits the road with his father’s old car and drives from Macedonia to Istanbul. From the moment they first meet, the two brothers, Sakıp and Selim, just can’t get along. Selim has no interest in going to Macedonia and refuses to play ball. When Sakıp realizes that Selim won’t be persuaded, he gets his brother drunk and kidnaps him. Then they hit the road.
