Yahya is an obese man of about 40 years of age. In the past 40 days, he has memorised the Quran in the seclusion of his cell, and the prison authorities give him a 12-hour leave for that. During his short leave, he kills many pigeons in the city to provide meat for his wife and son, both very overweight and unable to work, while he is away. Yahya, who has been banished by the society, has started a struggle for the survival of his family, which leads his life to more seclusion every moment.
