"Two people wanted by the Martial

Law command post...

...were arrested by security forces

the other day in Findikzade.

Upon receiving information

on Monday morning...

...the security forces raided street

and took control of the area.

The officers entered and

searched the first floor apartment...

...and with the security forces..."

Have the wolves come down to the village?

Their howls are so close.

Yes, it's like they're chasing someone.


I don't know if it is a horse or a person,

but they are closing in.

God protect them!

Don't say that!

Give me the flashlight woman!

Hurry up!

Oh, they caught it.

God damn them!

BREAD 100 cents. POTATOES 25 cents.

We have paraffin oil.

Mom. What do you mean

they still aren't saying yes.

Look, I'm not going to stay

single here in the mountains

I already said so when I was there.

And I am saying it again.

Hello, hello...

Damn, we got cut off!

It happens.

How much was the ticket?

And the phone call?

The phone call is on us.

What do you do?

Engineer, Forest Engineer.

Here you go sir. Have a good trip.

I'm going up to the high road.

I will get it in the afternoon on my way back.

Take it easy. Bye!



You toppled another oak tree.

What if the forest ranger sees you?


What would anyone be doing here,

this early in the morning?

You are also right. That is true.

The Oak tree toppled over. / The crown

up in the sky. The Oak tree toppled over.

We have gotten news that

a young informant called in with...

...the information that Bari akmaki,

alumni of Middle East Technical University...

...has been hiding out at apartment

in Vaniky.

The police surrounded the ground floor

apartment and wanted to enter there.

Realizing that he was going to be caught...

...Bari akmaki grabbed his

automatic weapon and started firing.

In the cross fire two police officers

were wounded and he was shot to death.


Where are you from?


Where are you going?

To the town.

- A new assignment?

- Yes.

- Are you a teacher?

- No.

Those who come here cry,

those who leave here cry.

Is she your sister?

My wife.

- You got married young!

- That's what happened...


Who is this bum?


Look iko, my friend!

You know that I am alone

and brave like my father.

I climbed to the very top of those

cliffs by myself this summer.

Not there man, over there...

That was a wolf.

No. It was a fox.

So, it wasn't a wolf huh!

Yes, it wasn't.

There is a saying around here,

do you know it?

They say a wolf is found in the

swamp and the bear on land.

There are many wolves in these mountains.

But everyone has a bear story around here.

Ikram, tell that bear story of yours.

No, brother Sinan.

When I tell it everyone laughs at me.

Ikram comes face to face with

a huge bear in the forest.

Ikram was frozen in his spot.

The bear spit in lkram's

face and walked off.

When lkram told the story, the guys

teased him, "what did you say to...

...the bear that he spit in your face and

it didn't even consider you a man."

Lkram, at least tell

the story of Uncle Idris and llyas.

Why are you looking

at the child like that?

You know Harun went into the army.

This boy took his place.

Anyway, he is Harun's uncle's son.

This Recep has fallen in love with

the daughter of village headman.

And they gave her or are going to give her

to someone else, or something like that.

So then he became depressed.

It's a bitter love affair.

- Welcome Hasan.

- Thank you.

- How are you?
