    • Synopsis
    • Chehnaz, an attractive, modern woman and her husband Cem live in a hip neighbourhood in Istanbul.
      Chehnaz has been assigned to a public hospital in a small, remote seaside town to complete her mandatory 2-year duty as an aspiring psychiatrist. While treating her patients during the week, she's mostly looking forward to the weekend and their Istanbul lives. However during this routine, Chehnaz' sexual problem with her husband becomes more evident - a problem that she is not able to face.
      After a stormy night the course of Chehnaz's life is changed forever when she meets Elmas, a young woman from the town, who was married-off to a distant relative. Elmas survives as best she can far away from her family in a hostile environment with an older man she doesn't love.
