"Wild animals must have been a terrible menace to the early settlers, until civilization got rid of them in its holocaust destruction of the natural landscape. Apart from the direct extension of arable land we may mention only the slow but permanent destruction of the forests by man and goat. This early menace found its expression in animal cults and animal totems dominating the life of primitive man in many regions of the world. In the Middle East most of these cults and totems although existent still in many myths and rituals were forgotten with the growth of town cultures and of empires. Domestic animals have been decisive factors in history. The horses of the Hykos invaders and their chariots revolutionised warfare, as did elephants in the period of the Diadoches ... The asses as beasts of burden opened the road to commerce. Beasts of draught put primitive agriculture on a profitable base ... The domestication of the camel enabled the bedawi to pass rapidly with their caravans through the deserts, which were closed before ... Other animals of historical importance were the carriers of diseases and famine ..."--Pg. 7.

Im August 1980 macht nicht nur die Hitze den Menschen in Ankara zu schaffen. Auch politisch brodelt es: In der Türkei herrscht Bürgerkrieg, Menschen sterben auf offener Straße, bald wird das Militär putschen, um das Land »zu retten«. Diesen chaotischen Sommer verbringen die Kinder Ayse und Ali gemeinsam. Sie könnten kaum unterschiedlicher sein: Ayse kommt aus einem behüteten Elternhaus, ist quirlig und fröhlich, Ali, der introvertierte Sohn der kurdischen Putzfrau, lebt in einem Elendsviertel. Die beiden haben eine gemeinsame Misssion: Sie wollen die Schwäne aus dem Schwanenpark retten, die der Befehlshaber der Armee in seinen privaten Garten bringen lassen will. Damit sie nicht entfliehen, sollen den Schwänen die Flügel gestutzt werden. Die Erwachsenen haben andere Sorgen, doch Ayse und Ali haben sich ihr Gefühl für Recht und Freiheit bewahrt.
