An agency boat is taking three new crew members to a bulkcarrier named MV Sarmasik (IVY). The ship is aimed to sail to her loading port Egypt to carry goods to Angola. As she is sailing down south the shipowner who was not able to pay salaries to these crew members for quite sometime goes bankrupt. The ship reaches to the Egyptian port. The captain and everyone else on board learns that there is a lien on the ship and they are not allowed to get on land nor call the port. The ship is taken to the anchorage area. Officals tell the captain that as sea safety regulations the least amount of crew members has to stay on the ship. Others can leave. Altogether number of five seamen volunteers to stay on the ship. They are ‘the Kurd’ from machinery department, Nadir from the kitchen, Cenk and Alper as seamen, Ismail as experienced seamen and the captain. They are the ones that need to be away from their home, they are the ones who need the money most amongst the crew. They don’t know how long they are going to stay. IVY is the story of these six men staying in that ship for hundred and twenty days. During this period, these men suffer hunger and thirst. They face isolation, day by day paranoia amongst them grows. They argue, divide into groups, transition from wanting to align with the captain to forming an opposition against him... and the ship will turn into a hunting ground. Who will be the winner at the end of this struggle?
