Yusuf is an only child who lives with his parents in an isolated mountain area. Yusuf watches in admiration as his beekeeper father Yakup hangs specially-made hives at the top of the tallest trees. With the skill of a tightrope acrobat, he must often suspend dangerously from the uppermost branches to gather honey. His father must travel to a faraway forest on a risky mission. Yakup still does not return. Yusuf summons all of his courage and goes deep into the forest to search for his father.
