This documentary tells the story of immigrations that began when the Otoman Empire started to lose its territories, and which continued during the 20th century, including political developments and their reflections in our day, through the perspective of the immigrants. In a way it draws a picture of contemporary Turkey with its villages established by immigrants and cities enlarged by immigration, and sheds light on a process progressing over centuries on a vast land. It was a journey from Edirne to Kars describing extraordinary accounts of ordinary people extending all over the world due to unusual incidents and crises. This documentary tries to show that this is not only the story of immigrants, but of everyone.
