An elderly Kirghiz who lives in a caravan in the middle of his sunflower field is in search of love. Nowadays, he’s convinced, you find it online. Finally, three women are on the short list and the optimistic Kerimbei is forced to learn that the modern way of communication does have its pitfalls. A delightful miniature about love in the age of Tinder and the question of what it means when a woman doesn’t answer her mobile phone.
