Plot
A large and poor Kurdish family travels, as always, from their hometown of Batman to the vicinity of the capital city, Ankara, to grow lettuce as hired hands. A sudden explosion of love will change their story for ever. The film gives almost a complete lecture on growing a lettuce, starting from its seed to its becoming a salad – an astonishing work on the story, the struggle, the hard work behind each fruit and vegetable we feast on.
Director's Statement
An estimated 1 million people in Turkey work as hired hands in agriculture –a form of vast exploitation of labour. They work without any insurance whatsoever and are paid extremely low wages. Most of them are Kurdish and, to top it all, underage. It is art against the sharp class struggle that continues to-date, against new ways of colonialism and against people alienated from what they produce and consume. Art should continue to be the conscience of humanity.
