His yearns to see this other son, whom he left when just a baby, one last time and get his blessing before passing away. Sakip, upon learning he has a brother, sets off from Macedonia to Istanbul in his father’s old car. All the information he has is that his brother’s name is Selim and an old address his father gave him. The two brothers fail to hit it off from the first moment. Sakip tells Selim about their father’s last wish, but Selim refuses to accept the situation. He is not interested in going to Macedonia. However Sakip is determined to convince and take him to their father at once. Seeing that he cannot convince Selim, one night, Sakip kidnaps a drunken Selim, puts him in the car and they hit the road..
