Synopsis

Istanbul. In the area of Fikirtepe. Urban transformation is sweeping away the poor communities and Syrian refugees take shelter in deserted buildings. Kamil and his wife Remziye are threatened to lose their house. Being unemployed for a while, Kamil has no other choice than to secretly accept a job at the construction site. He is not only taking away the job from a Syrian refugee, but also working for the company that destroys his own area. Oppression and anxiety both in his neighbourhood and at work gradually transform him. When Kamil suddenly disappears, Remziye will have to face the consequences of his actions, which does not fit with the man she used to know. Yet she is not ready to give up.
