Synopsis

One of street kids, Oktay is an amalgamation of a beggar, a junk collector, a rubbish collector even a glue sniffer; he has begged on the streets, he has collected rubbish; he has sold paper, cuddled up to stray dogs. His life changed in Istanbul through chance meetings with students and discarded books he found in the bins. He read them and began to collect them for himself. Now he runs a multi genre second hand book store. This young man’s story, in which he went from nobody to someone, shines a beacon of hope and understanding for all ready to listen.
