Ten years ago the Turkish government decided to create a landfill near the mountain village of Cambumu. Because the facility doesn’t meet important safety standards, it is a constant source of environmental problems in the region. The film shows the devastating consequences for the local tea growers and how they are trying to fight back against the government, judges, and financial interests.
