The White Heart

Ак жүрөк

Retired school teacher Dariykan is engaged in a mission impossible to defend the women of her town. She carries on in almost complete indifference while I accompany her in her everyday efforts to aid a homeless woman who is desperate to get her two kids to a boarding school; a Russian orphan who dreams to study art, but in the meantime cleans the floors; or find money for hospital expenses of a mother with disabled twins. At a time when media and internet are helping even the most conservative countries to open up, the wall of silence around Dariykan’s clients induced by indifference and perceived shame seems impenetrable. This Last Mohican of Soviet Secularism through her unrelenting efforts achieves some results, even though she has to face angry husbands or bow to a Mullah for money.
