    • Synopsis
    • Leaving behind a ruined career and a bitter divorce, Selim returns to his hometown Izmir. Unwilling to make plans for future, he wanders around, revisiting his past: family, schoolmates, an ex-lover and the city. He runs into Cihan, a pal from the military service: a lower-class idler with charming energy. As people start leaving the city due to a horrible smell caused by a maritime accident, Selim finds himself gradually drawn to a new world where he’ll embrace possibilities of life again.
