    An estimated million people earn their living as seasonal workers in Turkey, many of them ethnic Kurds. The work is built on the exploitation of casual labour, including children, and these seasonal workers have no benefits or insurance. Living conditions are poor and transport is dangerous. This character-led, observational film tells the story of a family of 22, living in a two-roomed house in the outskirts of the southeastern Turkish city of Batman.
