Summary: Base lives on her own in Elbistan, southern Turkey. Her one hope in life is for her oldest son Hasan to come home and make a life for himself like everyone else. She attributes the silent phone calls she receives at home to Hasan. At around the same time, her younger son Mehmet, who lives in Diyarbakir, finds out that he's to be a father. While moving into a new flat, he comes across an audiotape of his mother and himself as a boy which was recorded to send to his father. Mehmet sets off for Elbistan to look for the tapes his father made and persuade his mother to come and live in Diyarbakir. When Mehmet finds his mother unable to think of anything but Hasan, he slowly manoeuvres himself into her world, dealing with the repairs and garden jobs Base is keen to get done. At the same time, he hunts around the house for his father's tapes. Although Base tries to put Mehmet off, saying there are no tapes left, she fails to deter him. As Mehmet continues looking for the tapes, he begins learning things about his family he didn't know before.
