Umut is a water polo player, a gentle & quiet high school senior, trying to live his life in a complicated world. When a fellow player spreads a rumour that Umut is gay, he refuses to comment on it. Feeling the world has no right to know either way.
While Selma & Sinan pull at the edges of their relationship Umut’s insistent refusal spirals the problem into something uncontrollable, until one day Umut disappears.
