Brief synopsis

A Kurdish woman is sentenced to house arrest with an electronic ankle bracelet. The charge: supporting terrorist activities. Now an invisible border runs through her garden in a Turkish village, which she repeatedly crosses. Her older son is torn between obedience and rebellion. How far will he go to protect her from further punishment?
