When a man named Oroslan dies in a small village, the sad news spreads quickly. In an effort to overcome grief and restore the ordinary course of life, Oroslan's close ones share their memories of the man they used to know. And before long, the stories turn into legends. This sensitive drama shows that everybody can become a story. This multi-genre film walks the line between a documentary and live action, between autobiography and fiction, reminding the viewers that neither the director nor the film should be trusted blindly.
