Encounter/S focuses on the stories of siblings fallen apart from each other and discusses the impact of the social transformation Turkey has been experiencing on the various sections of the society. Rauf Bey is one of the shareholders of a big construction company and is one of the last of the generation who have always been faithful to the ideals of Republic of Turkey... Now it is his funeral... His only heir is his adopted son Dr. Mehmet... He is a plastic surgeon... Dr. Mehmet is not really interested in either the company business or politics. Rauf Bey bequeaths a considerable sum and a “secret” whispered in his ear on the deathbed. Dr. Mehmet is confused with these two items of inheritance, one formal and the other private, and postpones his decision which everybody is expecting him to make. He starts looking for his mother, brothers and sisters he has never seen. Then he meets his brothers and sisters who have different lives.
