For 18 years, the Syrian Orthodox nun Dayrayto lives on the grounds of a church in Zaz, a dilapidated and abandoned Assyrian village in southeastern Turkey.
She is vulnerable to multiple threats. Her presence in the region is a thorn in the side of many local actors.
There has always been hostilities from the Muslim side and little support from her own community. Lately, the situation is getting worse and Dayrayto fears for her dog’s life, which she believes has been deliberately poisoned.
The camera follows Dayray through her everyday life and observes her struggle for survival, her worries, and hardships as fear and loneliness are her constant companions.
