Hydroelectric plant trouble struck BaÄŸbaÅŸÄ± village in Erzurum, Turkey, along with many others. Several years of legal and physical struggle has taken its toll on the residents, due to the pressure of the contractor. One of the unbelievable verdicts is for Leyla, a 17-year-old girl, who is prohibited from talking to any villagers. Sentenced to silence and thirst, villagers faced state violence for the very first time in their lives, but nevertheless continue their everyday lives.
