Drama

Synopsis 

An author of psychological novels, Ahmet Dirimoğlu, buys a house in the middle of the woods near Istanbul to attain the peace and quiet he needs for writing his new work. However, half a year has passed, and he still cannot achieve any progress. One night, as he drives to the communal fountain, he is distracted for a moment and hits something. Despite his searches, he finds no traces of this incident.

This accident, which occurs during an exceptionally busy week and around his birthday, traumatizes him. His already fuzzy mind is further muddled due to the chaotic nature of the neighbourhood and the townsfolk’s all-knowing attitude.
