Plot
Denise, a botanist, who is studying and breeding a local plant, has moved to a village on the Black Sea coast of Turkey after a traumatic loss and a failed marriage. Being a foreigner and much older, she has a secretive relationship with her lover Hamit. Denise does not (yet) know that Hamit is a human trafficker. Both keep secrets from one another, Denise about her past and Hamit about what he does. The tension builds as Denise encounters traces of a group of immigrants who are to be taken on a dangerous journey by Hamit and meets a young refugee girl, Sonya. The sense of approaching storm dominates the film. 
The film is narrated in three chapters: The Shore, Ashes and Water, which are non-chronologically arranged and focus on different aspects of events by moments of overlap. Each chapter relates a different aspect of the events from the perspective of a certain character.
