The dead Syrian is soon identified as Wael Al Hussain, whose wife, Samira, is in prison for attempting to kill Gencer a year ago. At the time, no one believed Samira's story that Gencer's wife had planned the attack, but now Samira's sister begs etin Ikmen to re-examine her claim.

Meanwhile, Inspector Mehmet Sleyman is on leave with his teenage son, Patrick, who is visiting from Ireland, but when Detective Kerim Grsel's transsexual ex-lover, Pembe, is also murdered, shortly after confessing that Wael Al Hussain had used her for sexual favours, Sleyman knows he must help Kerim solve this complex case.
Entering a world of the Syrian diaspora, where tales of mythical storytellers abound, Ikmen and Sleyman uncover a tragic tale of dark secrets and double lives where nothing is at it seems...
