A beguiling journey of transformation is the subject of a film of pure artistry.

Middle-aged Nihat, who works in the kitchen of a hospital cafeteria, lives a life of constant routine. His dreary but comfortable existence is disrupted by the arrival of a new co-worker, a mysterious young woman named Ayse, whose husband is in prison. Ayse's persistent attentions lead the initially reluctant Nihat on an adventure that leads to a change in identity. Ordinary gestures and objects take on surprising new meanings in this magnificent work of the new Turkish cinema.
