Life in a small town is akin to journeying in the middle of the steppes: the sense that “something new and different” will spring up behind every hill, but always unerringly similar, tapering, vanishing or lingering monotonous roads…

As they drive through the Anatolian countryside looking for the body of a dead man, a policeman, a prosecutor and the two men who have confessed to the killing talk and joke with each other, gradually revealing the strands of a much greater mystery.
