This is story of Cevher and his family and their daily struggles as seasonal workers in the cotton fields of Southern Turkey. Cevher depends on the family earnings from the fields to pay blood money for a murder one of his relatives committed.
Anxiety is a panoramic view of the Çukurova region on the verge of a monumental transition from feudal traditions to capitalist modes of production. Focusing on the dilemmas of a cotton worker, Yılmaz Güney and Şerif Gören’s layered social-realist melodrama demonstrates the need for unionization.
