When a retired court officer is diagnosed with Alzheimer's, his life completely transforms as he seeks to deliver vigilante justice before his mind completely fades away.

Agâh spent his career working as a court officer in a small town. Now, the widower is retired and living a quiet, orderly life in Istanbul. But beneath the placid surface he rages as there is one thing he could never forget: an unspeakable crime committed against a little girl years ago. Yet when he is diagnosed with early-stage Alzheimer's, everything changes. He is determined to kill all the officials who had covered up the murder. Every single one – before he forgets everything. His bloody trail of revenge is being investigated by young detective Nevra, who is the only woman working at the homicide department – and she is bullied for it. Agâh and Nevra, who have been on very different paths all their lives, do not know that they have actually been approaching each other this whole time. Nearly a dozen men will have died before their lives intersect and force them to look at their past... Is their encounter a mere coincidence? Or is it a small part of a bigger puzzle?
