In 2001, during the peaking political turmoil in Turkey, Emine(25), an electrical engineer, starts working on a construction site in Istanbul where mostly Kurdish workers are employed. She gradually takes hostile attitude against the workers. Ayşe(8), daughter of a Kurdish family in a southeastern village witnesses her family being forced to leave their land by Turkish local authorities. This nested story of Emine and Ayse is about getting stuck between one’s social surroundings and conscience.
