Like Wall Street hedge fund brokers, men who take up religious vocations – whether Muslim, Christian or Jewish -- tend to be depicted in terms that often verge on cliche.Clerics and imams have been depicted as scholars and social workers, but seldom both at once.It's likely that few film representations of professionally pious men quite live up to the profile of Selman Bulut. Selman Bulut (Serkan Keskin), the Imam of the Karak?y mosque, notes that the police aren't pursuing this case with the energy that he thinks appropriate. While being interrogated about the murder, Bulut learns that the victim, a man he's known as a pillar of the community, is actually a loan shark with a long history of operating on the wrong side of the law.The murderer escaped through a secret door in the mosque that only the muezzin and the imam know about, making the young man a prime suspect.
