Comedy, Drama

Mehmet is from east Anatolia, Berzan from the west, but both have come to Istanbul to look for work and a new life. Mehmet is working his way up - he has a good job repairing water pipes, and has met a woman, Arzu, with whom he is becoming close. Berzan lives in a poor part of town and scrapes by selling cassettes. His dream is to make enough to return to his village sweetheart. But one day when Mehmet, whose skin makes him look like a Kurd is mistakenly arrested for possessing a gun, he loses his footing, realizing that he is forever haunted, as a red X is marked wherever he stays; he, henceforth opens his eyes to Turkey's harsh reality. Mehmet is then forced to become personally involved in the politics of his country. His loyalty to Berzan eventually forces him to disregard an uncompassionate bureaucracy and he embarks on a symbolic journey eastward across Turkey all the way to the Iraqui border.
