Plot
A clan of sheepherders attempt to cope with the modern world in this melodramatic tragedy. The youngest son wants to take his wife into a city to be treated for internal bleeding, but the boy's father, the clan patriarch, will only allow her to receive treatment after the clan has successfully negotiated the perils of a trip to Ankara in order to sell one of their flocks of sheep. On the way, they encounter the depredations of greedy officials, thieves, and their own foolishness.
