Trailer
Haunted by a tragic incident, Nihat has isolated himself by becoming a fire warden and withdrawing to a remote observation tower. At a rural bus station nearby, Seher has taken a job as a hostess to escape her own past. Reluctantly choosing companionship over isolation, the pair develops an uneven domestic partnership after their lives are brought together and their pasts are exposed.
