Riza (Riza Akin) is a truck driver mortgaged up to the hilt and unable to work, because his truck has a broken crankshaft. Wherever he turns, no-one will lend him money for repairs. Riza struggles with isolation and despair, living in a run-down hostel with other men whose lives are at a standstill - or, rather, have always been on hold. He attempts to borrow from an ex-lover and to share his turmoil with her, but it is all too late. Chance offers him an opportunity to obtain more than enough cash, but only by committing a violent crime.
