Summary

A middle aged but well preserved man, ASHU, prepares his hotel in a remote but popular area of Istanbul. As his guests start to arrive between 10 and 12 p.m. everything seems fine in the hotel. The guests are happy to find the location and eager to take a rest. A family, MARY, STEVE and their daughter, a mentally challenged man, SISTO and his ex-prostitute girlfriend, DOMINO, a young couple RAVEN and SHADOW and two travelling college students PESO and SANDRA all come in one by one. What ASHU has in mind is more than a quiet night though as he secretly planned a devastating meeting with an old and seemingly wise man, SODOM, who would confront the guests about their choices in life. After SODOM makes his bizarre entrance, guest’s secret lives start to unfold.
