A lonely manager of the oldest zoo in Turkey and an introverted female officer form an unlikely bond. As they cover up the death of the zoo’s most precious denizen, an Anatolian leopard, to stop the privatisation process by faking the big cat’s escape, they set in motion an absurd charade that spins out of control. The ghost of the leopard roams Turkey’s grey and quiet capital.
