Hasan, at the age of eight, lives in a small village with his parents. Everyday, he leaves his home in order to sell milk that is stored on the motorcycle. The most joyful time for Hasan is playing the marbles game with his friends. This game means something different for Hasan than his friends because they tell Hasan’s dreams. The more he has marbles, the more he dreams. He never shares his marbles for the fear that he would lose his dreams. He hides the marbles in the backyard at night and takes them back in the morning. But a day changes everything.
