Synopsis

Kamil is only 28 years old, but his mounting worries make him look much older. He initially can't bring himself to accept work at one of the many high-rise developments responsible for pushing residents out of his native Fikirtepe neighbourhood, but financial desperation eventually trumps ideals. Kamil secretly takes a job as a bulldozer operator, working under the table for the same reduced wage that was given to the Syrian refugee he replaced, much to the violent resentment of his fellow Turkish co-workers.
