Synopsis

A committee for missing persons joins with scientists, witnesses, and family members to search for mass graves. In the Beşparmak Mountains, there are 921 such places. The scattered bones are reassembled into the skeletons of the deceased. Forty years later, the massacre is brought to life in a meditative black-and-white film about places of memory.
