The story of 10 children and 3 mothers from Diyarbakır, Lice, Ergani, Cizre, Mardin, Nusaybin, Kızıltepe, and Varto… The children, the biggest victims of an ongoing war of 30 years, and mothers, who shed tears the most, tell how much they anticipate peace with a great hope and craving. The common wish of the speakers is peace, despite all their sufferings. This wish for peace is not solely for the region, but for the whole world. Through telling the experiences of those behind the mountains, the documentary becomes a ray of hope for pessimists who think that peace will never come.
