Synopsis 

The film tells the story of Ishak, a lonely Saz musician wandering through the night clubs of Anatolia, who is forced to return to his hometown after 8 years of self-exile. It is also a story of Ferhat, an old deranged outcast who wanders alone in the woods, and of Sirma, a city woman who visits the small town from time to time to take care of her sick father.

It is a story of a trauma, a disappearance which is known to all but talked about by none, of the young man, Ali, a forest ranger who arrived in town eight years ago and since has been gone without a trace. A story of deeds buried deep in the past, a secret shared by Ishak and his childhood friends, which comes back to haunt him, his friends, his community and the whole land, setting the course to an inevitable collision.
