The rowing women carry us from Dalyan town to the Kaunos Tombs and Çandır village located on both sides of the canal joining the Aegean Sea. Homes and boats for these women, who have been making a living from rowing for many years without destructing the harmony of the nature, have become an extension of each other; and the relationships they established in these places and with these places have been intertwined. ‘There and Back’ follows the daily lives of the rowing women whose lives are organized away from the patterns of the urban theories.
