Synopsis: In 2010 Zara, a nine year old, picks hazelnuts with her family in the Turkish Black Sea region. Working 11 hours per day during the harvest in August, often seven days a week, in the evening, they return to a tent camp where no facilities are available. Making this journey every year, Zara and her friends routinely return to school late. Five years later has anything changed? Has child labor been reduced? Have the facilities for seasonal workers been improved? And how fare the children who are doing the hard labor?
