“Hacivat Karagöz Neden Öldürüldü?” opens in 14th century Bursa,
a city on the border of the Byzantine Empire.
People who are exhausted from the Mongolian attacks immigrate to this city, which is also a shelter for the ruling class from various crumbling states and governments.
Among those seeking refuge, are Karagöz and Hacivat. From the moment they meet, their conversations entertain those around them and eventually, they start to present stand-up shows.
