Synopsis: Vural’s life is the epitome of mundanity. Born and raised in a pious family, he performs his duties as a father to a young boy, a breadwinning husband, and a caring son to his sick father, with whom he runs a photography shop across the American Consulate in Istanbul. Continuing the family traditions, he preaches the lessons of righteous life to his son. Yet, Vural has a secret, a minor transgression of his faith: An affair with Sonay, a young woman who visits his shop for passport pictures she needs in order to apply for a visa to the US.

Sonay dreams of leaving and finding her luck elsewhere. Her dreams, however, shatter. In her emotional distress she confronts Vural, putting a threat on his uncomplicated living. Vural is faced with a hard choice: to deal with the consequences of the sin he committed or to cover it up and go down the dark path of dealing with his complete loss of morality.
