1977. Poised between the secular values of socialism and the conservatism of a tenuously balanced government, Istanbul is a fractured city haunted by demons of its own making.
 
Along with thousands of other left-wing activists, Oak’s interest in politics leads him to join the annual May Day rallies. There he encounters Zuhal, a fearless girl with a gun.
 
As battles rage between nationalists and socialists, Oak witnesses the violent suppression of dissident minorities by his fellow citizens. The bewitching Zuhal begins to shape his ideals, bringing him face to face with disillusionment, and death.
