rated for 0 + years
Selim is 40, but in his head has remained a child. His autism dictates his family's life, above all that of his mother, who looks after him selflessly. Her greatest worry is what would become of him if anything happened to her or her husband. This worry was the reason for their second child Zafer, who is 15 years younger than Selim and who has always suffered from being in his brother's shadow. On the day of Zafer's wedding, old scores and new plans are thrown into disarray when Selim disappears and with him the centre and the cement that holds the family together.
