Two sons, two daughters, grandsons, granddaughters, plans, records, a gramophone and a trunk get carried from one house to another every two months. There's also a plane tree underneath which they meet once every two months! Although the retired teacher Mrs. Adviye's mischievous, sometimes a little peevish character seems to make things difficult for her children; for her grandson Baris the most meaningful thing in life is his grandmother. Only Baris looks forward to the meetings under the plane tree and pretty soon Baris and others will have to look after Adviye in their own house.Written by

Good Intentions, Mediocre Result
You will for sure leave the theater with a smiling face. The relationship between the grandmother and grandson will warm your heart. Broken families, however gathering every Sunday at the family picnic will fondle your optimism.
Nevertheless, let's be reasonable. The scenario is occasionally flawed; grandmother's sly pranks are far beyond convincing; Nurgul Yesilcay's career ambitions vs. motherhood endeavors are full of dull acting.
The movie is shot with good intentions yet cannot be salvaged from being mediocre. It is a happy movie though, just it.. Recommended for families with nothing else to do.
