Synopsis

A battered wife, Umay, leaves her husband and takes her son back home to Berlin. Although she explains the terror of her marriage, her working class father and older brother Mehmet insist she return to her husband in Istanbul. Even her mother and younger siblings tell her she is in the wrong. Despite all of this, Umay sets about establishing a new life for herself but the perils of going against entrenched attitudes result in a life-threatening situation.
