Fourteen-year-old Mümine lives with her family in the mountains of Macedonia, members of the Yörüks, a tradition-rich Turkish group of people. During her break from school, Mümine joins her parents and siblings in the field and, as they work together each day, she begins to chafe against the more traditional views of her mother and father who want to marry her off to a young man in the village. It’s the traditional way and the family would benefit from the dowry, but Mümine resists, holding on to being a teenager while dreaming of completing school and leaving the tobacco fields behind.
