One boy stands out: Berk. A loner with problems in almost every subject – because his life after school has been planned down the tiniest detail by his father. Berk secretly longs for a simple life in his home city of Istanbul. And he misses his friends. He remains uninspired at school, until one day an unusual topic is introduced: the future. But is there enough time left for him to turn his results around and pass his final exams?
