The play is presented as a protest against the degradation of the country, mistreatment of the values and principles when the society enters into a deep crisis of trust. Fear and suspicion conquers everyone. A handful of people with power, are no longer governing. They rule. An infringed individual raises his head and reports the crime that darkens the future of the country. Ajkun is an honest man, a hard working employee.  He cannot bear the injustice, evil, deceit.

One day he decides to speak. His life takes a terrible turn.  In Han, no one dares to confront the boss. The state is in his hands, but this will not last for long.

He no longer lives now, however the system that he fed with hatred and treason, subjugation and immorality, has deep roots. In prison of Han, Ores, a trafficker with close relations to authorities, will break the loneliness of the handcuffed citizen. The investigator will offer Ajkun a "deal" to accept the crime that he has not commit. In order to accept the crime, as blackmail, they come up even with the disappearance of Ajkun’s daughter, Lea. His wife, Bora lives among the broken dream for a happy life and serious accusations against her husband.

Isolated from family, abandoned by friends, expelled from work, Ajkun decides to go to the end. Behind prison bars, the hero of Han now turns into an antihero.
