Synopsis
Kurdish culture has a widespread, fascinating oral tradition, which explains everything; people faced everyday life, either by the way of singing or storytelling. Thus, cultural values are transferred vocally from generation to generation by these songs and stories, which are told by Dengbej. This documentary narrates the story of one-year life cycle in a village located in eastern Turkey, as several dengbej accompany us with their unrefined voice and thousand years memories.
