Ishak (35) is a wandering musician from a small mountain town. A lynching incident he was a part of seven years ago comes back to haunt him when he returns to his hometown to say farewell to his dying mother. Facing the other five perpetrators —all childhood friends— as well as the community and government officials supporting them, Ishak struggles with the guilt weighing upon him. In fact, everyone in the town plays dumb since they all have blood on their hands.
