Inspector CetinIkmendiscovers she was Ariadne Savva, a Byzantine specialist on a crusade to protect the historic areas of Istanbul that property developer Ahmet OEden seeks to destroy and rebuild.

As Ikmensearches for the lost child and the facts behind Ariadne's death, the people of Istanbul rise up in protest against their government in Gezi Park. Amid the chaos, Ikmenand his colleague Mehmet Suleymanmust unravel a tale of ancient hostility and modern desires, to find the truth concealed within the secret history of their antique city.
