    Retired widower Ali (Tuncel Kurtiz) sees a solution to his loneliness when he meets prostitute Yeter (Nursel Köse), and he proposes that his fellow Turkish native live with him in exchange for a low rent. At first Ali's German Professor son Nejat (Baki Davrak) seems disapproving about his father's choice, but the young professor quickly grows fond of kind Yeter, especially upon discovering most of her hard-earned money is sent home to Turkey for her daughter's university studies.

    The accidental death of Yeter further distances father and son, both emotionally and physically. Nejat then decides to travel to Istanbul to begin an organized search for Yeter's daughter Ayten. He decides to stay in Turkey and trades places with the owner of a German bookstore who goes home to Germany. What Nejat doesn't know is that 20-something political activist Ayten is already in Germany, having fled the Turkish police.

    Alone and penniless, Ayten is befriended by German student Lotte (Patrycia Ziolkowska), who is immediately seduced by the young Turkish woman's charms and political situation. Lotte invites rebellious Ayten to stay in her home, a gesture not particularly pleasing to her conservative mother Susanne. However Ayten ends up arrested and confined for months while awaiting political asylum. When her plea is denied, Ayten is deported and imprisoned in Turkey.

    Passionate Lotte decides to abandon everything to help Ayten and as the story develops she meets Nejat.
