The trailer opens with the voiceover saying that “this is the story of predator and prey” and “a war between the lions and the birds.” Akalay’s character, successful news anchor Lale Kiran, is approached by a young woman named Asli Tuna (played by Daner), who applied as an intern and is eager to have the life the anchor has. In one of the scenes, Lale Kiran says she feels cold, as if a predator is watching her in the jungle.
As the trailer ends, the narrator explains that this is also a war between a great ego and blind ambition.
