Cahit Tomruk is in his forties, a rock 'n' rolling boozer with a purposeless, dead-end job. Sibel Güner desperately wants to escape her conservative Turkish family. Both are German-born Turks equally ill at ease in either culture; seeking a new life, and a morality that will withstand the constant shuttling between codes. They marry--a marriage of convenience. Eventually his nihilism and her promiscuity lead to violence and jail for him, and scandal and possible death for her. She goes into hiding in Istanbul and after he gets out, he goes to Turkey to find her. This dark and vibrant story reflects the unstable moods of Turks in Germany, a half assimilated, half-alien population whose future is a quest and whose passion is ongoing
