Abdurrahman, a senior student at the conservatory, grows curious about the meshk (one to one traditional art training) of Mawlid (a hymn on the Prophet Muhammed's Nativity) and starts searching in order to perform this form of music that relies on traditional training. Today, the tradition of meshk which is about to disappear, has a dwindling number of masters who practice it. In a holy night, Abdurrahman who listens to an old mawlidhan (a professional Mawlid reciter) in Sultan Ahmet Mosque is so affected that he seeks out for him. Is the journey of the student who has to pass certain tests in order to find the master, to get admitted and start receiving meshk going to end up as he hopes? The film depicts an authentic picture of meshk through the master-apprentice relationship and promises a special journey tracing back this strong tradition of hundreds of years in Turkish classical music.
