    • Synopsis
    • 21st of March, 2013, was the date pointing a historic crossroads and a milestone on Kurdish issue. There were actively peace talks between the leader of the PKK Abdullah Öcalan and Turkish Government, holding an announce from Öcalan: "Shut the arms down and let the political period begin".

      PKK had started taking its armed forces out of Turkish borders and quite a lot of guerilla teams were moving abroad out of Turkey. But due to several disputes, few guerilla teams remained on the mountains of Dersim.

      Our movie begins by holding the hope of ending a 100-year-long war and uprisings, with a peace.

      The curiosity was mostly based on, among the three seasons of the Mountain, the contact of Women Guerillas with nature, their fears and their reasons for "climbing out to mountains".

      Some of them were just beginners, few of them were on the mountains for 25 years; each of them carrying an another memory and story of their own, filled with pains, joy, fun and tragicomic enthusiasm. While their story is told in a row lined up like links in a chain, story of the Kurds was being created in audience's imagination; which is, at the same time, the answer of why they are "there".
