Plot[edit]

Şahin K. is a wealthy and famous (or, rather, infamous) man who is discontented with his life. All he wants is to leave behind his past in Germany, wipe the slate clean and start leading a normal, low profile life in the southwest coastal town of Bodrum. In the meantime, he is also trying to win back his estranged son, who turned his back on him years ago because of his infamous career. However, as Şahin K. strives to win back his son, he unwillingly becomes a local hero to whom the entire town turns to get their problems solved.

Release[edit]

The film opened on nationwide general release in 100 screens across Turkey on January 21, 2011 (2011-01-21) at number 8 in the national box office with a first weekend gross of US$124,345.[4]
