Erden Kiral Tribute

The Canal / Erden Kiral

Water rights are an issue in any semi-arid country. Τhey are the focus of this drama, based on a true incident. A new administrator has come to a village in southern Turkey. The villagers hope that he will take up the cudgels to get them some improved roads and schools; the rich landowners hope that he will enable them to get the water they need to grow more rice. However, leaving water stagnant on the fields for long periods fosters the breeding of mosquitos. A local doctor points this out to the administrator in time to remove the water, preventing the extra irrigation, but political pressure from the landowners leads to another ending.
