After murdering his married sister's lover, Yusuf (Guven Kirac) inflicted a wound on his sister which rendered her speechless. Released from prison 10 years later, he looks up his mute sister, now suffering abuse from a husband who beats her. Yusef moves into a seedy hotel, sharing a room with depressed alcoholic Bekir (Haluk Bilginer), a man occasionally intimate with Ugur (Derya Alabora), a nightclub singer who is in love with a multiple murderer serving a life sentence. Yusuf becomes friends with Bekir, but his efforts to help him go awry. Shown at the 1997 Venice Film Festival.
