Janik and Samuel are best friends, despite being as different as possible in both heart and soul. After graduating from high school, they intend to enjoy their last carefree summer holiday to the full, and set out on a journey of adventure to Turkey in search of Samuel's father, Osman. However, things begin to get complicated even before the heroes embark on their trip. A story about the complexity of human relationships and the transition from boyhood to manhood, as rich in surprising twists and turns as life itself.
