    • Synopsis
    • Two brothers who lost their compasses and swung to different poles in a ruthless rivalry against each other. The younger brother J (lawyer) comes to Istanbul, after many years abroad. He hasn’t told any member of his family that he was coming.
      J's mother Figen, is a headstrong, idealistic, extroverted woman. She loves to open her life to people who need a keeper. House is sort of a shelter for various people.
      The people J interview demand his services for the legal infrastructure of illegal human trafficking. J refuses to work for them.
      J goes to see his brother. G is a con artist pulling internet scams, swindling charities with stolen identities. He’s self made a street sinister. Although skewed, the consistency of his morality is smooth. He believes he takes from those who deserve. J and G apply their personalities, the deep gap between their lives in a hidden conflict and judgmental yet humorous conversation. They say their goodbyes. J goes to the airport. He is taken under custody. Due to huge tax debt and legal transactions against him, J has a ban on leaving the country. With J's identity, G founded a company, swindled businesses, and ended up with ban of international departure for J. J can’t leave without fixing the chaos in his family.
      J's father, Sarp, estranged from Figen, comes to J’s rescue. Sarp is a cheerful, childlike man. Like every man who seeks to be loved by everyone, he’s a perfect failure.
      J returns home, he finds Emine on the construction site next to them trying to save Figen's cat. J is metaphorically falling into a hole too. J mocks Emine's life. Emine invites him to the Byzantine corridors under Istanbul.
      They descend the galleries under Sultanahmet. Emine hides, leaving J at the tunnels, coming from her mischievous character's unstoppable urges. Playful relationship between them shows J needs to walk alone in his dark self. Sarp calls. He's throwing a birthday dinner for G to make two brothers together again. He asks J to come.
      Big dinner brings all characters together. Even the old friends of J and G, whom they haven't seen in years, come. While they try to understand why they lost their camaraderie, J and G see their real conflicts. Confrontations explode where everyone gets things off their chests. In a sibling rivalry where no one wins, they both face with the fact of not being honored to the grace and consent they seek.
