Ismet is a Turkish soldier who recently retired from his duties as a Commander of the Coast Guard at the border. Now as a civilian, he struggles to communicate with his family and the people around him. His only son abandoned him by leaving for the U.S. and now his wife wants to join him there as well. When Ismet becomes neighbors with two refugees, Omar and Mariye, at his home near the Turkish-Greek border, he is suddenly called to face his prejudices and political views.
