Snow Pirates is a Turkish coming-of-age movie set against the backdrop of the 1980 military coup. The schoolyard crushes and classroom shenanigans of friends Serhat, Gurbuz and Ibo are rudely interrupted by a military coup in Ankara, and even their small eastern hometown is not immune from the political upheaval. With the military seizing coal in the depths of winter, the three boys are forced to scour the countryside for any other source of coal to heat their homes. With soldiers patrolling the streets, and things getting worse everyday, they have no choice but to leave their innocence behind and deal with the grinding reality of life under a military regime.
