Toss Up is the film of two stories taking place in 1999. The stories of two young men: «Rdvan the Devil», a football player from Cappadocia, Central Anatolia, and «Cevher the Ghost», a young man living with his father in Istanbul. Both went to the army for the military service together, and fought in the Southeast. Both had dreams and expectations for their civil lives back home. After returning from the army, Ridvan goes back to his village with his right leg missing, due to a land mine explosion, the leg that he would score goals with. The same explosion causes Cevher to lose his hearing ability. «I do not wish for the audience to return to life right after watching the film. I want to leave a mark, make them uneasy, leave a silent impression on them.» (Ugur Yücel)
