After what should have been a harmless tonsil operation, fourteen-year-old Leila goes blind. Several doctors can’t explain why. Leila’s father Attila, in particular, becomes increasingly angry, accusing the doctors of botching the operation and covering up the truth. In the process, he falls into an emotional downward spiral. The family becomes very estranged from each other, until the father, in his despair, makes a momentous decision.
