The inhabitants of a Southeast Anatolian village face enforced migration as a dam project threatens their hometown and the ancient cultural heritage. Metin, a local journalist assumes leadership on the resistance movement. As a result of corruption and self-interest, they are left staring at defeat, and Metin hits rock bottom. Meanwhile, 13-year-old Roz, who has come to the town as a migrant from a village destroyed due to terrorism, is ever hopeful while the townsfolk fall to defeat.
