SYNOPSIS

The Beekeeper relates the touching story of a beekeeper. The turmoil of the Turkish-Kurdish war took away everything that he had: his wife, his children, his country and over 500 bee colonies, his way of making a living. He was left only with his love for bees and his unshakeable faith in the individual human being, regardless of his background. After a long odyssey full of deprivation, the beekeeper again found a life for himself in Switzerland, thanks to his passion for beekeeping. The Beekeeper is also the unusual story of integration in the seemingly conservative heart of today's Switzerland, showing the struggle between human interaction and political propaganda.
