The movie begins and is mostly placed in Istanbul.
Valerio is an Italian who is betrayed by a Turkish woman and from Istanbul leaves to the eastern part of deep Turkey after the footsteps of the journey that Catullus made 2000 years before in the then Asia Minor.
Sidar is a Kurdish boy who writes letters to his friend in jail dreaming of joining the guerrillas, but ultimately can not go and get the last letter of him, this time no more in prison but on the mountains to fight.
Hüsna is a young girl who wants to embrace all struggles against injustice in the world but is forced to fight a more close-up one, that which prevents her from wearing the headscarf in the university, with sarcasm and severity of the guards of the campus.
Coşkun is a boy of Sulukule, an old "roma" neighborhood under demolition in the center of the city in order to accommodate the building renewal, who dreams of flying with a kite and escape reality but also of looking down rubbles and human greed.
Shobolay is a young Eritrean refugee pending documents that one day, tired of waiting, decides himself to leave towards the border with Greece to entry, clandestinely, into Europe.
But throughout the film is especially the voice of Parrhesiastes, an unrepentant Armenian radio speaker, who overlooks the reality on the wings of a timeless music and tells it through unexpected and outdate paths, affirming a new surrealist manifesto.
