Selim is a shop owner in Istanbul. Selim is an affectionate family man who has devoted his life to his home and his work, and is known for his honesty and integrity. One day, Selim finds a bag full of dollar bills in a taxi. This brings a small crime and a big tragedy to him and his family.
Reha Erdem’s festival darling has quite the electric premise, finely capturing a family man overwhelmed by this new circumstance he finds himself in—a sudden windfall of money that leads only to ethical quandary, a crisis of conscience, and mounting paranoia.
