One day, Assem tries to enter the room and is struck by the voice of his grandfather telling him that a year hasn’t passed yet. He leaves but decides to return some other time and loses his way to get lost in a forest where he hears his grandpa’s voice again. Salma, Assem’s sister, has a nervous breakdown imagining that she has seen Assem after the long months of his missing. She gets an urge to check grandpa’s room remembering how Assem wanted to do that but her breakdown puts her to sleep and to waking up in the morning with no recollection of what happened the night before. In the forest Assem is rescued by an old woman who catches him falling from a tree. She calls herself the Master of the Forest and invites him for a meal at her place.
