Asli, a young nurse, is sent to a remote mountain village in the northeast of Turkey in the middle of a harsh winter to complete her compulsory service. Many of the villagers greet her with scepticism and Asli becomes aware that this rural society is conditioned by the patriarchy. When rumours start that bears have woken from hibernation early and killed local livestock, and then a man from the village goes missing, Asli finds herself in the middle of power struggles and secrets.

Aslı vient d’être nommée infirmière dans une petite ville reculée où, cette année, l’hiver semble sans fin et entraîne dans son sillage une rumeur ; les ours seraient sortis plus tôt de leur hibernation. Alors qu’un homme est porté disparu, les luttes de pouvoir, les secrets et les doutes assaillent Aslı.
