Turkish director Semih Kaplanoglu’s dystopian drama, inspired by a chapter from the Muslim holy book of Quran, 'Grain' won the Grand Prix award at the 30th Tokyo International Film Festival.

“It is a post-apocalyptic story set in a world where those that survive, are divided between the remnants of cities and agricultural zones,” according to Internet Movie Database’s (IMDb) website.

Speaking at the closing ceremony at Roppongi Ex Theater in Tokyo, Kaplanoglu said that he worked for around five years to complete his film, the Anadolu Agency reported.
