Released from a juvenile detention centre on probation, Yusuf (17), who has obeyed the family elders’ decision and set his sister up for an honour killing, is taken home by his elder brother Ramazan, who has committed the murder. Surrounded by the cruelty of traditional moral and religious rules that can turn a child into a murderer, Yusuf is forced to go to Iran, struggling with his guilty conscience.
