Synopsis

After the dog days, a coming storm approaches during a sudden road trip to a distant island for a funeral. While the deceased is buried in haste, a man makes detour through Aegean Turkey: a dip in the sea, a dream at a town hotel, a light sleep at a hammam, a visit to the coffin-maker. After arrival at home, leftovers are eaten while mourning looms. The funeral is eclipsed by a final wish.
