Each in her own way, two sisters compete for their Turkish father’s approval. When he is no longer among them, they learn to appreciate their mutual differences better.

How can you qualify first for your father’s affection? By being as obedient and as faithful to tradition as possible? Or by living completely unconventionally and untouched? The Turkish sisters Meral and Elif lead these contrasting ways of life, which causes tension when they help their dad move to Turkey. The memories merge with the present, in which their father is no longer among them. Can the two highly different women learn to appreciate each other again when sharing a loss?
