Semahat, whose parents emigrated to İstanbul from Sarajevo many years ago, decides to take a journey to her homeland in spite of her old age. Fatih, a film director, finds her story very interesting and wants to shoot the entire journey in the form of a documentary. Ufuk, a friend of Fatih’s, feels this journey will be an opportunity to leave behind the mess in his life and joins to help them. He records the story of the family on his camera while they are headed to Sarajevo. When they arrive, the journey will make them face the dreadful truths of the most recent war. There is no meaning of the past and no hope for the future for those who are struggling to survive.
