A family with three kids, in Istanbul, living in the opposite shore of modern city life. Although their daily routines have similarities with the ones of city dwellers, the values they question and the consequences they undergo are the same. The lies that we tell ourselves to exist, our conscience, the pain of coexistence, the obligations developing out of habits, regrets, and the mutual destiny of humanity; bereavement!
