12 September 1980 is one of the most important days in Turkish history. New constitution and laws made after Coup D'Etat were biggest backward steps in Turkey. These anti-democratic laws made Turkey semi-fascist state. Nowadays we are trying to restore our democracy. The last quarter of 70's most of the right and left groups were terrorizing over the country. Everyday tens of people were killed in explosions and assassinations. And the Army made a Coup and make very strict laws. The movie tells about the last summer before the coup. In the least developed part of country. (southern-east) A man is appointed to the town as a library manager. But there is no library there and he is actually exiled because he is communist. It tells about political struggles between two left fraction. People's love and life. And that dark era can not be explained more funny.
