    • Synopsis
    • Despite the pressure of “don’t go!” from his family and the prejudice of people around him, Kibar went to start his job at Karalar village in the district of Başkale, in Van, a village without a veterinarian for four months, where quarantine was issued because of rabies. Bobi, who was not allowed to have a Kurdish name and who is a permanent employee of the District Directorate of Agriculture, and also who will become his right-hand man and later on his best friend welcomes Kibar. They try the teacher’s lodge and then the hotel, but Kibar ends up spending the night in Bobi’s tiny “boarding house” with little air to breathe and no toilet. Away from his family in İzmir and the life that he left behind, with the determination to succeed on his own, Kibar manages to better his life day by day. He wins the trust of locals when he manages to lift the quarantine after a successful operation. All the worries are left to his mom Müzeyyen: ‘What if they kidnap my son. What if something bad happens to my son…’ After all to Müzeyyen, East means guns, explosions and terrorism… Kibar goes to another village in the district for livestock headcount and falls in love with the beautiful Asya; a university student at an open university, who doesn’t talk much but says it all with her eyes and is the daughter of ‘Femen Hatçe’. But there is someone else that is after Asya; essentially the sons of livestock trader Heydo’s son, but who in fact looks a lot like a hyena puppy, Seydo… His mom, his new love, his life in his old town, his friends, his foes, his very demanding job and all the dealings going on around him, Kibar finds himself in an adventure that takes him from İzmir to the İran border in the very east of Turkey.
