Dragon Trap (Turkish: Ejder Kapanı) is a 2010 Turkish crime-thriller film, directed by Uğur Yücel, about two detectives investigating a series of murders of released pedophiles, which was sponsored by the Istanbul Police Department. The film, which went on nationwide general release across Turkey on January 22, 2010 (2010-01-22), is one of the highest-grossing Turkish films of 2010.


Ensar (Nejat İşler) has turned into a ruthless death machine during his military service, during which he fought terrorists in numerous clashes in southeast Anatolia. Having just completed his compulsory military service, Ensar returns home, but on the very day he comes home, he finds out that while he was away, his 12-year-old sister was raped. Later, unable to cope with the trauma, the little girl hung herself at a mental asylum she was put in following the incident. In the meantime, Ensar’s hometown is shaken with a number of murders. Two skillful detectives from the homicide department, Abbas (Uğur Yücel) and “Akrep” Celal (Kenan İmirzalıoğlu), along with rookie Ezo (Berrak Tüzünataç) are assigned to investigate the murders. The case will be the last one Abbas has to solve before the retirement he has been anticipating for a long time to put into practice his plans to move to a quiet and far away place with his longtime girlfriend Cavidan (Ceyda Düvenci).
