An emigrated Turkish family in Germany wins together the jackpot of the lottery. While the parents immediately want to buy a hotel in Cappadocia to fulfill their dreams of returning home to Turkey, both of the two grown up sons, born in Germany, have completely different plans or none. Particularly the youngest son, Haluk called Luk, has no clue what to do with his part of the fortune. Tacitly his parents assume that he will contribute to the acquisition of the dazzling hotel in Cappadocia. Instead of that Luk, having never concluded anything serious in his life yet, starts impulsively to reflect himself, his life and his future, resulting in the heavy futility of a variety of his plans and some kind of happy depression, caused by unexpected wealth. To escape this dilemma Luk meets his former girl friend Gül, an occasional singer and beautiful girl, unhappy with her life...
