In a Kurdish village lost in the mountains, the young Jiyan sees the arrest of her father by the Turkish police. Together with others, the man is suspected of being a terrorist and will only be released if his family hands over the weapon in his possession. However, Jiyan’s father has never had a weapon. Determined to recover one, the girl and her grandmother begin an adventurous journey in the midst of roadblocks, racial discrimination and blind storytellers.
