The novel begins with a case of missing children, and tells the twists and turns of a retired policeman who, driven by his sense of responsibility and justice, insists on tracking the case until the truth is revealed. Enthusiastic, kind and honest people have recovered the long-standing folk culture and national traditions while seeking for the missing children. The sun is turning around on this land, and people’s lives are turning upside down.
