Storyline

Constantinople, 1910. Too many stray dogs in the streets. The newly installed government, influenced by an occidental model of society, calls in European specialists to get rid of the dogs, before deciding, finally, to deport 30.000 of them on a desert island, off the coast of the city. Through both looks of a dog female and of the policeman who puts her in a cage, we follow the forced exile, the abandonment and death throes of 30 000 dogs who will mostly die of starvation and thirst.
