A middle-aged Turkish immigrant in Germany entertains a relationship with a young woman looking to escape her conservative home.

Cahit, a forty-year old Turkish man, attempts to start a new life for himself in Germany when he is admitted to a rehab facility following a drug-addled suicide attempt; Sibel is a young Turkish-German woman trapped in a conservative Muslim household, yearning to forge her own path free of her stifling traditionalist confines. Desperate to leave as her family insists that marriage is the only way to be "saved", Sibel talks Cahit into a marriage of convenience that she assures will be platonic, ultimately falling in love anyway as they marry and hit unexpected bumps in the roads of their respective lives.
