Synopsis:

Just days after a murder in a small Anatolian town, the perpetrators, two brothers, are caught and questioned. They confess to the crime, revealing that they buried the corpse somewhere 30-40 km outside the town. Based on the evidence given, the public prosecutor, local police chief, doctor and a handful of other officials take off to the road with the culprits on a mission to exhume the corpse and bring it back to the town. It soon emerges that everyone in the search party approaches the mission with their own set of expectations.
