As always, Osman – a street vendor of Turkish origins – goes to his favorite park in the centre of town to partake of his frugal lunch. While sitting at his usual bench he notices Luca, a child of six years, playing football with his friends. Osman appears to be fascinated by the little boy. He seems obsessed by the need to get to know the boy and to be able to hold him close. The friendship between the two seems odd and increasingly suspect …but things are not what they appear to be.
