Released from prison after serving a 35-year sentence, Baran the Bandit makes his way to modern Istanbul in pursuit of the woman he left behind. There he falls in with a young gangster who helps him find his lost love, and the two develop a father-and-son relationship that illustrates how profoundly crime has changed since the old man's day.

Turkish with English Subtitles.

Public parking is available in the San Antonio Garage (SAG).
