The young and beautiful Iffet lives with her father and younger sister in one of the older and more modest neighbourhoods of Istanbul. She is deeply in love with Cemil, a taxi driver at the local taxi station. Iffet dreams about the day when Cemil will propose to her. In fact, Cemil does not want to marry Iffet yet as he has bigger plans. One day he will be rich, so rich that he can leave the middle-class neighbourhood and live an exotic life elsewhere.
