Young Memo, a boarder at a repressive boys’ school secluded in the Anatolian mountains, falls mysteriously ill. Yusuf, his deskmate, struggles through the bureaucracy of the school authorities to get help for his friend. When the tutors finally realize the seriousness of the little boy’s condition and try to get him to a hospital, the school gets completely isolated under heavy snowfall. While trying to get outside help, teachers and students engage in a blame game where grudges, guilt feelings, and hidden secrets surface while time ticks on.
