When he was working in the UK, Fatih borrowed a lot of money from his friend, Ayhan to send to his family back in Turkey. Fatih has since returned to Turkey and the debt remains unpaid. During a trip back home, Ayhan visits Fatih and his family and politely asks for the money back. Ayhan’s request lights a slow-burning fuse in the family, who live in the same building on the income from overlapping business interests. And all the buried conflicts between different family members come bubbling to the surface.
