    • Synopsis
    • Müfit is a wimpy guy who has given up the fight against the hardships in life: he has surrendered to them. When diagnosed with cancer, and given only six months to live, he turns into an anti-hero.

      He decides to confront the people who have been pressuring him up to now. In the meanwhile, he hides the truth from his family to avoid making them upset.

      However, Müfit’s wife is suspicious that something is going on with him; and thinks Müfit has been cheating on her because of his behaviors. His wife’s misunderstanding leads to some hilarious situations.

      Müfit starts creating a bucket list. And yet, his bucket list is not an “ordinary” bucket list. His bucket list consists of items such as finding the girl whom he loved from afar in high school, and declare his love for her, calling his mother more often, telling his father that he loves him at least once, treating his wife just like in the first days, and seeing their daughter happy. Müfit starts to realize that what modern life imposes on us as necessities are actually artificial, and sees the true beauty in life which is actually not too far away. There is no reason to seek happiness because it is closeby, it is family, it is our loved ones, and it is within us.
