11-year-old Aslan saves an injured Kangal sheepdog named Sivas, a fighting dog that was left for dead after losing a brutal match. He then tries to use Sivas to impress his classmates, in particular the girl he likes, and even sets up an amateur fight with another boy's dog.

Moved to Berlin, Germany in 2003 and among other ventures practiced filmmaking. Among his short films, Day of German Unity was bought by several TV channels; and Jerry, his thesis film at the New York Film Academy, was screened within the scope of Berlinale’s Talent Campus, which he attended in 2011. Müjdeci’s documentary Fathers and Sons, about dog fights in central Anatolia, served as a platform to write and direct his first feature film entitled Sivas. Shot in 2012 with production support from the Turkish Ministry of Culture, Sivas also received a post-production grant from the Istanbul FF’s Meetings on the Bridge in 2013.
