YARIM

The Half (YARIM) is the story of two halves setting out to become a whole; of the efforts made by two children to play the male-female roles that their families have, with the best of intentions, cast them in.

Fidan is a 15-year-old shepherd girl. She  lives in poverty with her father and two siblings in a mountainous village in eastern Turkey. Her father gives her as a bride to a family none of them knows. In return for payment…  The man who will be her husband, Salih is mentally challenged; although he has a physical age of 35, his mental age is lower even than Fidan’s.

About

Bridge to Türkiye Fund (BTF) was established in 2003 by community minded Turkish Americans (Turks4Good) driven to make a difference, to improve life and to cultivate social change for the common good. Our circle of compassion promotes respect and fellowship for humankind in the communities we serve. Turks4Good commitment to these ideals stems from our basic desire to give back to our native land for the many opportunities we have gained from her. We invite you to also contribute to the welfare of less fortunate children in Turkey.
