A large amount of money enters into life of Selim, who is an ordinary man running a small shirt shop, and his wife Ayla. That money also effects their neighbor Nihal, who is a divorced woman living with her mother in a basement, whose only interaction with world is the television. That large amount of money brings a small crime and a big tragedy to their little worlds. There are dreams, there is tragedy, there are smiles and of course there are tensions. —Tokyo International Film Festival
