Following the cycle of seasons, this is a portrait of three generations of members of an extended family living in a small Turkish town. In winter, a ten-year-old tooks at the social environment which she has to adapt to. Spring is coming. The young girl and her younger brother join their parents in the wheat fields. They discover the mysteries of nature and the wildlife. Summer is back. Brother and sister go back to the fields. A fire is lit and corn ears are roasted. Soon autumn settles in and takes us back inside the house. The children will start facing the harshness and dishonesty of human nature.
