A German film team is shooting a documentary in northeastern Turkey. In a remote Kurdish village, they witness an elderly woman performing a recurring ritual to keep the memory of her missing son alive. The Kurdish translator of the German crew is also the nanny of Melek, a 7-year-old Turkish girl. Her father, Zafer, works for a sinister organization and is caught between loyalty to them and fear for his family's well-being when his daughter appears to be haunted by a mysterious force. The fateful encounter of these people develops a destructive power. In the Blind Spot unravels a complex net of conspiracy, paranoia and generational trauma.
