SYNOPSIS
The story of a professor who goes back to Turkey, where his grandfather raised him, evoking memories of his first love. In 1959 in Istanbul, Fanis Iakovidis is a young boy growing up in the multi-cultural city, where Greeks and Turks live side by side. Fanis's grandad, spice shop owner Vassilis, tells him that "life, like food, requires salt, too". Ignorant of growing political tensions, Fanis is heartbroken when the family is split up. As a Greek citizen, Fanis' father has his property confiscated and moves with his wife and Fanis to Athens; old Vassilis stays in his beloved Istanbul. Back in Greece, the family suffers the initial irony of being treated as de facto ‘Turks'. Flash forward to Athens in 1964, and Fanis is showing real talent as a cook, much to the comic dismay of his parents and teachers. Fanis still misses his grandfather and even his father notes that “Greece was much more beautiful in our minds than what we found here." The last segment is set in the present day, as the mature Fanis, a respected astrophysics professor, finally returns to Istanbul, where his granddad is mortally ill.
