Welcome to the New Istanbul! It’s become a ticking time bomb conquered by chaos, engulfed by its own concrete jungle and a mob of 15 million people. Weary 9-to-5er Tahsin has had it, he’s getting out of this joint and he’s decided to take off to the picturesque Mediterranean coast. He packs his essentials, hits the road. But what begins as a hopeful journey transforms into an absurd and comical urban nightmare in this mega-city. Because even though Tahsin wants to let go of Istanbul, Istanbul is not quite ready to let go of Tahsin and doesn’t allow him to leave!
