We are in Varto. On 19 August 1966, the peaceful silence of ancient lands was broken for 30 seconds. Those 30 seconds changed the destiny of many people for decades. Townsfolk run screaming from the earthquake, which is a mystery to them. People repeat the word “Kaf” to one another as they run away. Screams join the rumble of the roaring land. Houses are ruined, bodies are buried in the ground, snakes invade, bees attack, water shortage, and great pain. Varto is in ruins. A new day comes, a month, a year though the story of a tragic journey continues for the people who survived. Survivors migrate to all corners of the country and the world. Varto was unknown in the world media until this terrifying incident. This film
