Emin Alper

It’s a summer’s day and retired forester Faik is receiving visitors at the family’s rural property in Anatolia.

Faik’s son Nusret has come from the city to visit—with his two sons Caner and troubled Zafer, scarred by his army experience. Also present are Mehmet, Nusret’s brother, and his wife and children. Despite the summer setting, the mood remains oddly muted. Faik is having problems with a local band of nomads and is constantly on his guard. Within the extended family tensions start to rise to the surface, but when the case against the nomads intensifies, all differences are forgotten.
