Seventeen years ago, Hasan left his village in Macedonia fleeing with his family to Turkey.
After relinquishing his Macedonian passport in exchange for Turkish citizenship, the 54-year-old never looked back.
For years he lived in self-imposed exile even though his family invited him to return to his land and distant loved ones.
Finally he relents and decides it is time to go back to his birthplace. He accepts his niece’s invitation to return for a two week visit.
We follow Hassan as he discovers long forgotten memories of a place where time has stood eerily still, and peace, once threatened, remained intact.
