Defne, a young woman with special powers, makes an appointment for a tarot reading from the best fortuneteller of Kadıköy, Hale. The cards are spread, but Defne acts weird, she doesn’t seem to care. Whose fortune is being read, really? And who on earth is that strange dude hanging in the background? A harsh realty-check awaits them but definitely without cards.
