Mehmet, a young Turkish man newly migrated from the village Tire, takes a job searching for water leaks below the surface of the streets of Istanbul. Due to a strange set of events, he is mistaken for a Kurd, imprisoned, and brutally beaten. Upon his release a week later, he becomes an outcast marked as a Kurd, losing his apartment, his job, and eventually his girl friend, Arzu. When a Kurdish friend, Berzan is killed in a street protest triggered by a hunger strike, Mehmet takes a trek to return the body to Berzan's home village near the Iraqi border, and learns why so many Kurds are refugees.

this is a must film to see in order to realise fellowship and sisterhood between Turks and Kurds.
before evaluating this film i should note that people who are unaware of Turkish real political history may hate this film.no matter how Europeans see us,no matter how they evaluate us,i don't care what an American intellectual thinks when she/he watch this film.it is obvious that their torture behind citizens of world.we see how Europens can violate human rights when situation suits their purpose. when we come to film,i can say that it is good example of telling Kurdish problem without exaggerating.i always believed that Kurdish problem in turkey can be solved by music and archaic friendship between two community but not with the hands of politics. finally,this is a must film to see in order to realise fellowship and sisterhood between Turks and Kurds.
