This video tells the story of Turkey native Omercan Sakar who came to Brooklyn following his passion for music.
In doing so he left behind his entire family, his friends, and his homeland. Since then, he’s been working on creating music and has become a fixture of the climbing community in New York City.
When Petzl announced that its 2014 Roctrip tour, a traveling rock-climbing festival, would be going through Turkey, Sakar agreed to be the cultural guide and make the trip back to the homeland he had left.
The video follows Sakar on his journey back home to reconnect through climbing and music with his half-brother and the country he left behind.
