Mehmet is obsessed with the dream of finding gold and other precious minerals in the mountain in which he lives with his family, but his failure sends his family deep into debt and despair. Will his next project be a success?
Powerful and poignant, this touching tale of poverty and persistent follows the family of Mehmet (Haydar Sisman), who once made a little money by finding a seam of gold in the mountains where he lives in a dilapidated hut with his long-suffering wife Hanife (Nuray Yesilaraz), their two sons, Ibrahim (Ibrahim Kuvvet) and Mustafa (Temel Kara, with disabilities), his mother-in-law and a few animals, including a bull.
Much to Hanife's despair, Mehmet continues to roam the mountains for days at a time in search of minerals for potential exploitation by a nearby mine. However, his perseverance turns out to be in vain and the family's debts keep increasing. Despite endless toil the family drowns in dreariness and despair, while Mehmet’s wanderings have made him a local laughing stock.
When the snows come, making it impossible for him to continue prospecting, Mehmet again decides to take up a different dream by transforming the bull he was going to sell at the market into a fighting bull, and sets about training it. What will the future hold in store for him and his family?
