A tragicomic break-up story between a Turkish father Cengiz, living in Finland, and his 26-year-old half-Finnish daughter Melisa. Their symbiotic relationship begins to deteriorate when Melisa moves to Turkey to start a life of her own. Cengiz’s inability to deal with Melisa breaking free starts a chain of events where Melisa cuts her father off, and Cengiz – after years of deliberately avoiding Turkey and his dominating mother – travels to Istanbul to meet Melisa, and is thus forced to face his mother and Melisa’s Turkish boyfriend.
