In a small town in Turkey, a man casually throws away half a loaf of bread when it becomes stale. Time starts to rewind and we see everything that had to happen to get that loaf of bread to his table.

Director's Statement:

This short film tells you everything that you need to know before you decide to throw away any amount of food or clothing. Sometimes it can be bought for large or small fees, or even at no cost. A loaf of bread goes through an incredible process to come to your table. The food might not have cost you much, but it took a lot of effort and sacrifice to get to your plate. Every piece of food thrown away adds to another man's hunger and wastes another person's labor.
