Inspired by Orhan Pamuk's best-selling novel The Museum of Innocence, the documentary follows a narrative set in Istanbul, intertwining themes of love, memory, and remembrance. Like in Pamuk's novel, the main character is Kemal, who creates a museum to preserve the memories of an unforgettable love. Narrated by Orhan Pamuk, the documentary, through the objects displayed in this museum, traces the memories of Kemal's passionate love and the remembrance of the city where these memories took place, questioning our relationship with the past.
