We observe the ghostly night of a lonely Istanbul through panoramic views recorded by security cameras. Meanwhile, a family discusses voting options in view of the imminent elections. The intimate and political intertwine in this particular urban portrait that, under its apparent calm, hides a disturbing view about the control of democracy, social alienation, and the inevitable tragic becoming of a nation that five months later would see Erdoğan’s AKP party regaining the parliamentary majority.
