Selyataği (Floodplain)

A search party searches for someone lost in a forest, in turn becoming lost themselves within the arboreal zone.

A half-civilian, half-police force group evacuates the village and the forest for construction, and seek in turn the seekers.

An old tree releases a slumbering spell, overtaking everyone within its reach.
