Cahit is a German Turk in his 40's. He has given up with his life after his beloved wife's death until,  one night, he -intentionally- crashes into a wall. At the hospital he's taken to, he meets Sibel, who's also tried to commit suicide because of her family's traditional issues. She asks Cahit to carry out a white marriage so that she can get rid of her family's pressure. Sibel tells him that she's interested in absolute freedom involving other people so they would live as roommates.  Cahit accepts, but while living together, they fall in love with each other.

The film is recommended by Iosif Proimakis.
