Yavuz (58) sings popular songs from the ’70s, but his career has sunk to irregular performances in a shopping mall and teaching music on free municipality courses. Neşe (30), one of his students, has a real talent for music, but earns a living by promoting sausages at supermarket stands. When Yavuz is offered a singing job in Yozgat, he asks Nese to accompany him. Before long, Yavuz and Neşe meet Sabri (30), a barber who has two ambitions in life: to get married and to open a women’s hairdressing salon. A friendship begins to grow between Neşe and Sabri, throwing Yavuz into a state of inward anxiety. The choice that Neşe now faces is between two different men and two different lifestyles.
