Ensconced in a military, psychiatric hospital, Hakan fights nightmares that haunt him every night. With the gentle help from nurse Ayla, he slowly recovers from his posttraumatic stress disorder. Rewarded with a medal of honour, he is finally discharged. Back to his normal life in an empty flat, memories of a lost family flood his heart.
A get-together with his daughter confronts him with his unsettled history. An unexpected visit from Ayla triggers his journey to an ex-companion with whom he served years ago. Will this confrontation help Hakan to get a grip on that dramatic winter’s night? Blue Silence – one man’s past tells the story of a country.
