    • Synopsis
    • Seven main characters… Seven branches… Seven distinct individuals representing the deepest roots underlying my country…
      First the roots transform into trees, then to branches then to blossoming flowers.
      But, what if one day the branches cease to proliferate?
      A small child from Eastern Turkey, in conflict with his grandmother … According to an old saying, the grandmother will not buy any dresses or cut his hair until the age of seven…
      An Eastern militant in preparation of a bombing attack …
      A young Turkish man living in Germany with his Serbian finance and deciding to return home …
      A young man abandoned by his girlfriend during military service …
      A pregnant young woman who does not wish to deliver the child of her lover …
      And, an old man protesting against privatization of the factory he has worked in all his life.
      Their stories intertwine, as our lives coincide with each other every day…The very beginning turns out to be the end, and vice versa, creating a circle. Like returning of the branches to the earth in order to form new roots …
