Yasar (Fikret Kuskan) is a meek family man, who works two jobs to support his large family. His relationship with his wife is not very healthy. They argue constantly, so their daughters, tired of their family situation, dream of becoming independent and leaving home. One unfortunate day, one of their daughters, Sumru (Elifcan Ongurlar), discovers that their mother is having an affair with a neighbor. They get into an argument, in which her mother accidentally is killed. When Yasar finds out, he decides to take the blame and go to jail in place of Sumru. Meanwhile, the sisters must bear the emotional weight of this family misfortune, trying to survive the difficulties they will face as best as they can.
