In Apollont lake, couples go for fishing. The father of the family is content to bring money to his family. He has done his role as a father. But the mother is worried about lake. After all, she is a mother, she is the mother of her kids and also the lake Apollont. Before the lake was her grandmother, mother, sister, game mate... She met her only love near this lake. She is anxious, at this time of the day, while cleaning his net, she says; "The other fishers hunts baby fish, they shouldn't take baby fish's breath!"

Location: Gölyazı, Bursa, Turkey
