The plumed inhabitants of the Topkapi Palace use the stormy winds to build their nests. Dolphins chase between the ferryboats and the oil tankers. A young wolf goes stalking. Separated from his pack on the Asian shores of the Black Sea, he conquers the Bosporus and penetrates into the narrow streets and hideouts of the old Istanbul. He is looking for contact and e new hunting ground on the European side of the city. The ancient world metropole, which expands on two continents and connects oceans, hosts a surprisingly rich diversity of animals.
