Synopsis

Laborers of the film industry have decided to march against the new censorship act in 1977. 60 years of silence in cinema was going to be interrupted for good. From actor/actresses to set workers, 400 women and men have started a 5-day-long walk to Ankara.  The documentary tries to picture this forgotten but historical event in the light of the 100th year of cinema.
