Summary

In a village where tradition and modernity; material and spiritual goes hand in hand, Ali is the last representative of the tradition in which the fish is regarded highly sacred, and when they die, they are buried with prayers in a special cemetery allocated for them.

Ali and his wife Meryem has only one problem, not being able to have a child. The young couple tries out both traditional and modern methods to be able to conceive.

Kazım, another villager who has been treasure hunting during the nights disturbs Ali every now and then due to Kazım’s interest in Meryem that dates back to their younger age. Musa, a fresh university graduate, accompanies Kazım in his dream of finding the treasure.

While the tension between Meryem and Ali grows bigger, Kazım and Musa ruin the fish cemetery in their search for treasure.
