Storyline

A barber working in Istanbul longs to be 'both here and far, far away'. And one day, without warning, he takes himself off and disappears abruptly into the great far away. The barber settles in a far-flung village, and as chance would have it the one-time local barber, Jingle Nuri, vanished from the place years ago. The village is in the hands of the mukhtar, the elected local chief. So the new barber rents his shop and opens the doors for business. The village is not, however, the innocent village. The mukhtar finds himself dealing with one mysterious disappearance after another. Güvercin, the prettiest girl in the village, is now missing without trace. The mukhtar and his only armed man, the village guard, set about questioning everyone in the village. The mukhtar suspects Cennet's son more than anyone else. And he beats the gentle dreamer with the soul of a poet to a pulp as he cross-examines him - which causes the boy to lose his mind. The mukhtar and the guard spread terror ... Written by Umit Unal
