A man retires to a sun-baked Turkish town for a quiet life. What he finds is a world of suspicion, paranoia and violence. In a community of shady local officials, corrupt businessmen and a crooked police force, our narrator's life spins into chaos and criminality.
The town makes a murderer of him. The question is, who did he kill?
