After the Russian ’93 War between Russia and the Ottoman Empire, the Molokan community, a part of the Russian nation, is forced to migrate to Kars in Eastern Anatolia. Among the migrating families is Mişka’s family. Mişka grows old in Kars and now operates the only mill in the village. However, he has to struggle with financial difficulties after modern machines start replacing traditional methods. In the meantime, the cranky old woman of the village, Popuç, hates Mişka and does not want him in the village. Popuç lives with her son Semistan, daughter-in-law Figan and three grandchildren. However, the smallest and most wayward of her granddaughters, Alma, befriends the old Mişka. Alma will help two elderly people question their histories and reveal their big secrets.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
