Film Synopsis

Chehnaz, an attractive woman, working as a psychiatrist, and her handsome husband, Cem live in a hip neighbourhood in Istanbul when Chehnaz has been assigned to a public hospital in a small, remote seaside town to complete her mandatory 2-year duty. During the week she treats her patients, only looking forward to the weekend when she will go back to Istanbul and her husband. 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. She survives as best she can far away from her family, in a hostile environment with an older man she doesn’t love.
