Four friends search for adventure during a post-college gap year in Istanbul. The figure of Turkey's modern founding father guides them towards discoveries about the world and themselves. More
Quit your job. Take a year off. Buy a one way ticket to a country you've never been to.
Staring down the uncertain path of post-collegiate life, Lane, Colin, and Matt think their choice is obvious. But when they end up in a place very different from the one they planned on, cracks begin to show. Each of them has a choice: give up or find a way to make it work.
The twisting streets of Istanbul and the looming figure of modern Turkey's founding father provide the backdrop for their search. The story, like the city, is by turns beautiful, grimy, comical, suspenseful, and surprising. Success is not guaranteed. But by the end of it all one thing is clear: sometimes you find something you didn't know you were looking for in a place you never thought you'd be.
