This lovely character study examines how our lives are determined by the past. Nihat has isolated himself by becoming a fire warden in an observation tower far out in the wilderness. Seher lives in a makeshift room at a bus station, and has taken a job as a bus hostess to escape her own past. Destined to meet, they go about their solitary lives until their fates collide. Beginning at first as muted antagonism, their relationship quickly turns into tender domesticity at Nihat's mountain-side watchtower. Yet the weight of the past presses upon them.
