Modern day Istanbul--a city of 12,000,000 inhabitants and a multitude of cultural influences--provides the chaotic backdrop for this taut, suspenseful tale setting three people from radically different backgrounds on a collision course over a bag that may hold the answer to each of their dreams.

Each of the protagonists in Emre Sahin’s dazzling debut film aspires to a better life, albeit all are on radically different paths in pursuit of it: Metin is a cab driver and petty thief who fled the violence of his Anatolian village childhood only to find himself dealing with bigger monsters in the big city; Sevda is a nurse and long-suffering wife searching for an escape from her loveless marriage; Godwill is an illegal Nigerian émigré who is desperate to get to France in hopes of finding work and a new life. Through a random series of twists of fate, their paths intersect amid the chaos of daily life in the teeming city, as each of them in turn finds a potential opportunity to achieve their dream. Blessed with a talent as vast as the city in which his story is set, writer/director/editor Sahin has created a debut tale which astonishes with the audacity of its telling.
