This European drama chronicles the struggles of a young Turkish immigrant woman trying to break the constraints of her traditional father by having an interracial romance. Simultaneously God in heaven debates whether or not to spare the human race. He gives his main angel 90 minutes to create a film demonstrating the worthiness of humanity. The protagonist of the angel's film will be Feride, a Turkish-Dutch girl who is also the last descendent of Noah. Edwin is the reincarnation of another important biblical figure. When Feride's Turkish father discovers that she has seeing Edwin, he becomes upset. Edwin's family, racists all, also make life uncomfortable for the gentle lad. Feride's father wants her to forgo thoughts of independence and education in favor of marriage. In rebellion, she runs away. Her family try to kidnap her and force her into an arranged marriage in Turkey. Edwin helps her and lets her hide in an isolated cabin until she turns 18. Meanwhile, God observes it all and offers his comments about Feride's progress. Things are not boding well for humanity.
