Plot
A small, poor village leaning over high rocky mountains, facing the immense sea, flanked by olive yards. The daily time is divided into five parts by the sound of the call to prayer. Every day, all human events are lived through within these five time slices.

Ömer, Yakup and Yıldız, three children of about 12,13 years old, just between childhood and youth, are the prominent characters in this movie of five times.
Ömer, the son of the imam, wishes hopelessly for the death of his father. When he understands that wishful thinking does not have any concrete results, he begins to search for childish ways to kill his father. He shares his guilty thoughts with his friend Yakup.
Children study in the village school consisting of only one classroom. Families show their gratitute to the young woman teacher by giving her presents -the bread they cook themselves, the milk of their own sheep.
Yakup is in love with his teacher. He hides his guilty feelings even from his best friend Ömer. When some day he sees his father spying the teacher, he dreams, like Yakup, of killing his father.
Yıldız both studies and tries to manage the household works imposed by her own mother. She tries to be a mother for her baby brother. On the other hand, she learns with irritation about the secrets of the relationship between men and women.
