The movie is basically an eccentric mirror image of an average person’s ordinary world. The film tells us two long days of watchman Salih and also concentrates on the lower-self of the ordinary people we encounter and pass over in everyday life. In these two nights, we witness the extensions of the potential violence in many people we identify as ‘quite, calm, harmless and innocuous’.
Salih, who works in relays as a cemetery watchman in a town, lives a life apart from the townspeople and the town itself, and has been doing the same routine for years. In the afternoons, he leaves home to keep his guard, covers two kilometers of ground, greets the milkman, ,who has the same routine as him, and keeps his guard throughout the night. He goes back to his house towards morning by walking the same road and greeting the same milkman again. He eats, sleeps and gets up in the afternoon to relieve guard.
