The succession of portraits shows Turkish protagonists whose names carry meanings like rain, earth, war and piece. Appearing like allegories in theatre plays, they comment on their personal relation to the characteristics that are associated with their names. “I am Ümit - hope” represents a general personification of a feeling, moreover it offers an individual conception expressed by the person in the video.
