Every June, the semi-nomadic Çepni tribe lead their cows on a two-day hike up to their high pastures called “yayla.” Today, only a few families still follow the old paths to the mountains where they historically spend the summer months. The story is told through the words of three Çepni women ages 20, 28 and 77. The film follows young Fatma and Sonnur in Istanbul, and the old woman in the village. Two young sisters have had to move to Istanbul to find jobs. They miss their hometown and the life they left behind. On the other hand, the old lady back in the village is witnessing changes in recent years and feels sad to see old customs and colours vanish as the village population decreases.
