A journey from the old Halicarnassus of Asia Minor to the New Halicarnassus in Heraklion of Crete. The trek, the uprooted people, the memories and the future... The pain becomes tears and the nostalgia has created a new reality for the residents of Old Halicarnassus.

The documentary contains unique testimonials from the uprooted people descendants that create intense feeling.
The uprooted people of Old Halicarnassus have become a significant part of the culture and the economy of their new land while constructing the New Halicarnassus. “Bodrum people” became the heart and the soul of the society who fought with the rest of the island’s residents for its prosperity.
