The story of the first love of a nine-year-old boy from a Kurdish village in the middle of some inhospitable mountains. The everyday life of the inhabitants here is beset by an unseen yet still unfinished war that affects the local mood.
Young Rauf falls in love with the twenty-year-old daughter of the carpenter he’s apprenticed to. Thanks to his Master, the boy witnesses the despair of the local residents who come to the carpenter’s for coffins for their fallen offspring.
The story builds on the contrast of colours – gray for war and pink for puppy love. Pink is also a metaphor for dreams and hopes. Rauf attempts to get a pink scarf for Zana, but the problem is that he’s never actually seen the colour before. Is it possible for Rauf to find it in a village covered in fallen snow?
