Istanbul, with the Bosphorus canal cutting the city in two, is defined as the place where Asia meets Europe. The western bank is in Europe while the eastern bank is in Asia.

This film pays tribute to Jules Verne's hero, Keraban the Inflexible, a tobacco merchant, who refused to pay the tax imposed by the Sultan to cross the canal. Hence, he decided to sail along the Black Sea coast to return home to the Asian side.
