This graphic novel outlines the end of Ahmet Burhan’s short life of 8 years, in particular the time period from July 15th, 2016, the day of the failed and so-called Turkish coup attempt, until May 7, 2020, the day when he died. After both of his parents’ arrest, Ahmet Burhan and his little sister Fatma Betul were left to live with their grandparents for a long while. Due to their longing, both children were often sad and depressed. Over time, this affected Ahmet’s health, leading him to be diagnosed with a type of bone cancer. As a result of the unlawful regulations imposed by the Turkish government on hundreds of thousands of people, the Atac family encountered many roadblocks that stood before the cancer treatment of Ahmet.
