Synopsis

A young Armenian's search for identity in the corners of present-day Istanbul. As a cultural melting pot, the city constantly feeds Murat's life, and the people, as diverse as the city itself, add color to his routine. Turkish coffee and tea, fish and rakı, the city's bustle and the peaceful movement of the steamships… For Murat, Istanbul is not just a residence, a shelter, or a home. It is a homeland. How do the individual and society affect one another? Memory and the present? The national and the universal? This film is a journey to the open and closed pages of Murat's identity.
