The night long journey of the four soldiers discharged from the army. They were in charge of the Istanbul phase of a coup that took place in May 1963 in Ankara. As the four soldiers believe that a strong announcement is a vital part of a successful coup and to attract the people, they plan to read a version of the original coup announcement that will be read in Ankara. However, there is one thing that they do not take into account: the invisible power of the civilian life.
