In the heart of Sahar’s journey, an Iranian soul embarks on a quest to mend a recent heartbreak, seeking solace amidst the breathtaking landscapes of Antalya, Turkey. Beneath the watchful gaze of the moon, fate takes an unexpected turn, leading her from a lively late-night celebration to a chilling twist of events.
As the echoes of laughter fade and the vibrant lights of the club dim, Sahar ventures into the night, her footsteps guiding her along uncharted paths. Whispers of destiny paint her as a figure of intrigue, destined to be entangled in a tale of opulence and mystery.
Within the shadowy corners of a small basement, Sahar finds herself captive, uncertainty weighing heavy upon her. Motivated by misguided beliefs, her captors see her as a ticket to riches, their ambitions fueled by the promise of a substantial ransom.
However, amidst the tension of captivity and the greed gleaming in their eyes, an ironic twist awaits revelation. Unbeknownst to the captors, their actions are based on a web of misunderstandings, woven with threads of misinterpretation.
Fate’s tendrils bind Sahar and her captors in a complex embrace, two parties brought together by a tapestry of misconceptions. As time unravels hidden truths and untangles the web of confusion, the line between captor and captive blurs, giving rise to an unforeseen connection.
Ultimately, Sahar’s story unfolds as a testament to the intricate nature of human interactions, where assumptions and intentions intertwine, giving birth to a mosaic of emotions and unforeseen outcomes. Amidst the shadows of that basement, a captivating tale of crossed paths and unexpected bonds emerges, forever altering the course of Sahar’s solitary sojourn in Antalya.
