Chehnaz has been assigned to a public hospital in a small, remote seaside town to complete her mandatory 2-year duty. Elmas was married-off to a distant relative and came to the town a few years ago. Hers was a forced marriage arranged by her father. She survives as best she can far away from her family, in a hostile environment with an older man she doesn't love.The encounter of these two women who could not be more different is a confrontation of different cultures, values and traditions. But as both women share similar anxieties and suppressions they manage to open the door to new possibilities and lives.

The film will be screened in the original language, with English and Hungarian subtitles.
