Gülizar survives by collecting waste paper from the rubbish. She fled to the city years earlier after being subjected to a forced marriage and persistent male violence in her home village. But her past haunts her in different ways like some kind of nightmare and she shifts constantly between present and past. While coming to terms with the tragedy caused by the men in her past, Gülizar also ridicules the men by reading news stories in the papers she picks up from the rubbish.
