Melike, Mustafa and Kadir, who are friends with each other, enjoy their youth in Anatolia. But life in their small Turkish village changes when Mustafa and Kadir leave their home country for Germany to earn a better living. Melike is left behind to wait for her great love Mustafa to return. Melike’s family urges her to get married. After five hapless years of marriage, she, too, decides to go abroad to earn money, and soon takes a liking to her new life in Cologne. It is there that she meets beloved Mustafa again, and a passionate relationship unfolds. Things escalate when her husband and both children suddenly appear at her door.
