Old Mithat from Istanbul passionately collects and archives newspapers in his flat, which threatens to burst at the seams. The other tenants ridicule him as a freak and he lives a lonely life. Then the other loner in the house, the Anatolian caretaker Ali, becomes his unanticipated friend. The building is to be renovated due to danger of collapse. The two of them develop a demure friendship as Ali begins to collect Mithat’s papers in his place.
