DESCRIPTION

The symbolic protagonist of the film is the Fikirtepe district of Istanbul, which is undergoing rapid urban transformations. Unemployed for a long time, Kamil and his wife Remziye could lose their home. The desperate Kamil secretly agrees a job on a nearby construction site. He is confronting his own ideals by demolishing houses in his neighborhood with a bulldozer, accepting as low salary under the table such as a Syrian refugee would receive. One day he disappears.
