The film tells the survival story of an adolescent shepherd who lives in harsh conditions, and his life is turned upside down with the arrival of a young female artist from the city. İsmail lives in a plateau with his mother, siblings, and his authoritative father. The suffering of the family, who lead a very comfortable life in the summer and spring, begins with the arrival of winter. The family leaves the plateau before the gustily storm arrives, although İsmail is left alone to look after the herd.
1638, the year Louis XIV was born –his second name, Dieudonné, alluding to his God-given status– saw the diffusion of a cult of maternity encouraged by the very devout Anne of Austria, in thanks for the miracle by which she had given birth to an heir to the French throne. Simon François de Tours (1606-1671) painted the Queen in the guise of the Virgin Mary, and the young Louis XIV as the infant Jesus, in the allegorical portrait now in the Bishop’s Palace at Sens.
