THE MAGIC OF ROSE

The history of rose is as old as the history of mankind. In the course of time, Isparta and its vicinity have become a magnificent rose garden where the roses which yield the best oil in the world are being planted. Among the manufacturers of rose oil, the local peasants of Isparta take the first place in the world. The process of yielding the oil is an adventure in itself. This process, during which the delicate pink rose tries to yield its oil without losing the smell of its leaves, is really a hard and long adventure. The rose neither has the patience to wait nor likes the rush. While yielding its oil, it acts coyly. Since the grower knows how coy it is, he shows a great patience. Abdullah Yıldırım who lives in the village of Büyük Hacılar in Isparta, has spent his years for growing and trading roses. This documentary shows within a daily routine of the family Yıldırım the diffuculties of this work, the growth of the rose, the picking up process, the older and the latest techniques for producing oil, and its exportation. And in the meanwhile, we witness the hopes of his family on the magnificent leaves of pink.
