Muharrem, a religiously strict Muslim, gets caught in the clutches of a religious sect. On its behalf, he is made to collect rent and to take care of the sect's “profane affairs.“ However, only a simple man, he is unsure if he can live up to the challenges which confront him in the vicious megacity of Istanbul.

Beginning in September 2010 and continuing until February 2011, the Filmmuseum will feature a series of 20 films from various genres which will take their audiences into the most remote regions of the Islamic world. The films to be shown couldn’t be more diverse and together form a cinematic kaleidoscope that addresses ongoing political tensions and themes such as modernisation, globalisation, violence and perceived departures from tradition, the power of reason, and life and poetry in our contemporary global world.
