Man is created of anxiety.

In a small Anatolian town life goes on: Cemal is an assistant referee in football games, Yasemin works in an egg factory, Defne is a street vendor who sells books, Doctor Irfan is occupied with his patients… In this town with two suns and three full moons in the sky, Cemal, who can see through the walls, has no expectation out of life and looks for a way out with Yasemin,who can move objects with her fingers, as he tries to deal with the distress that fell on his. However, Defne, who can freeze time will muddle things up and actions of Yasemin’s immortal boss will contradict the invisible elementary school teacher’s advices who is trying to eliminate the worries of Cemal.
