Ibrahim's dying wish is to be buried underneath a tree that he says he planted as a boy. The problem is that land where the tree was planted has become a holy site called the "Noah Tree". The locals in the community don't believe Ibrahim’s claim that he planted the tree, believing that it was planted by the biblical figure Noah after the Great Flood, so it would be sacrilegious to dig up the area surrounding the tree.

Regardless of who planted the tree, Ibrahim claims that his family still owns the land, so he enlists his son Ömer to help him in his fight to be buried under there tree, putting Ömer in conflict with people who might go to extremes to protect the land.

Winner of the Best Screenplay award, Tribeca Film Festival 2019
