Synopsis :

40-year old Cemal is a lonely hearse driver. He is given a secret task: A young girl named Zeynep has been brutally murdered and the body should be delivered to her family in the east. He hits the road. During the night, he opens the back doors of the van to find the dead girl making strange grunting noises. When he checks her pulse, but she doesn’t have any. The beautiful living dead girl mesmerizes him and as Cemal falls in love, he starts murdering people in order to feed her. Meanwhile, the police has started a serial killer hunt throughout the country.
When they arrive in Kars, Cemal realizes that the “family” waiting for Zeynep’s body is indeed a violent cult. Now, with a midnight ritual, her dead body should be burned.
