Five stories from the Turkish city of Kars: 12-years-old Yusuf has to cycle miles every day to get to school. But he knows that he‘ll catch a glimpse of Leyla. Nazli‘s childhood is a period of her life she has never come to terms with. Then, with news of her mother‘s death, she starts remembering everything. 7-years-old Zilo finds herself impressed by what her teacher has to say about Ankara. Setting herself the goal of going to the capital, Ozan, a student, returns to his village on receiving the news that his grandmother has died. Back in the village, he finds out a lot about the past of his father, an inwardly angry man. Celal Bey is a Kars farmer who uses traditional farming methods. But as someone who favours innovation in his everyday life, he decides to catch up with the times and hire an agricultural engineer.
