North America Premiere

A Unique Life | Nadide Hayat

Nadide chooses marriage over college and a career and now she's 50. When she loses her husband, she finds herself struggling between her daughter and grandchild who visit once a week and her son who just started his career and barely comes home. She can't find happiness in any activity – not in the sewing classes recommended for the elderly, not in choirs, travels, nor even the house visits. One day she reads an article in the paper. After that, Nadide first finds herself in college, then on a journey where she jumps into the deep! She sets sail for "a new start" along with a group of young and mysterious captains.
