TWO GOOD TWO BAD FIVE MEN | Storyline
Commissioner Okan is very excited and happy when he returns to his newly appointed
hometown with his beloved wife Lale and son Mert. However, a great tragedy occurs on the
first day they spend in the town. Inspector Okan’s wife and son died at the same time in an
accident while driving to the market. After this tragedy, Okan is taken to the tavern by his
childhood friend, an alcoholic Serdar.
They spend a long night there with Sedat, who is a victim like himself, and Kazım and
Serdar, who cannot bear the weight of their sins. After a while, Muhsin Bey, the respected
philosophy teacher of the town, unexpectedly comes to the table. At the table that night
are two good guys who have no crime but whose lives are turned upside down, and two
bad guys whose lives are turned upside down because of their own mistakes. These four
men, who have no choice but to drink, tell their own stories. Muhsin shows a way out of all
the stories he listens to and returns to a purification session at night.
