Mustafa is an ambitious student studying photography at the university. His sole purpose is to capture the "divine photo" frame that will place him among the immortal photographers and enable him to rapidly climb the steps of his career. To reach this aim, Mustafa takes a photo of each moment. After the earthquake on 17 August 1999, he sets out to the earthquake area to document the tragedies of the event. According to him, it can be an excellent opportunity to fall into his lap to take the "divine photo". At all costs, he would take "that" picture.
