Bal - Honig( Visual )

7 editions published in 2011 in 3 languages and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein kleiner Junge wächst in der unberührten Waldlandschaft der Nordosttürkei auf. Schüchtern und schweigsam, ist sein Vater die einzige Bezugsperson, zu der er ein inniges Verhältnis hat. Als der Vater, ein Imker, eines Tages von seiner Arbeit im Wald nicht mehr zurückkommt, ist das Kind zutiefst verstört. In Bildern, die sinnlich die urwüchsige Lebenswelt des Protagonisten heraufbeschwören und sie gleichermaßen poetisch mit Bedeutung aufladen, entfaltet sich ruhig und ohne viel Dialog ein eindringliches existenzielles Drama um das Ende einer Kindheit.

Als die Bienen überraschend aus der Gegend verschwinden, ist die Lebensgrundlage der Familie in Frage gestellt.
