The Turkish workers in this movie are in traveling by specially "chartered" bus to Switzerland to find work when their money and passports are stolen, and the bus, with them in it, is abandoned in the middle of a 24-hour shopping mall. Lost and puzzled, they remain with the bus until the need to eat and relieve themselves drives them to make forays into the mall. One falls into an icy river and dies, another has a nasty encounter which possibly leads to his death in an alley. Finally, the police notice the abandoned bus, and the men, protesting, are removed from it.
