Ismet is a Turkish soldier, who was on duty at the border as a Commander of the Coast Guard and recently got retired. Now as a civilian, he struggles to communicate with his family and people surrounding him. His only son abandoned him and left to the U.S. And now his wife wants to join her son, too. After suddenly becoming neighbors with two refugees (Omar and Mariye) at his house near the Turkish-Greek border and the humane experience he has to live through, he now has to face his prejudices and his political view.
