A farming couple, Oruç and Güneş, lives from wheat seed inherited from their ancestors. They want to pass the inherited wheat to their children but their childrens’ dreams are different.
In northeastern Turkey, a farming couple is still keeping a 1500-year-old ancestral seed alive. The farming couple’s faith in nature begins to be tested by the emerging dreams of their children and the test deepens as the harvest of this year is harder than usual. It is painful for Oruç and Güneş to imagine that the 1500 year-old family-seed will not be planted when they are gone, and it gradually turns into a nightmare for them. The farming couple, facing the fact that they cannot leave the fate of the seed in the hands of their children, and that they cannot enslave the fate of their children to the future of the seed, start looking for other ways to keep the seed alive. Therefore, the couple tries to share the seed with other villagers and persuade them to plant the seed as a solution to keep the seed alive. However, convincing the other farmers to plant this seed is not going to be easy, as it has a very low yield compared to the hybrid seeds.
