A young couple with dubious wealth returns home from the States to vacation and to sell the farm the woman has inherited from her grandfather. While living in Los Angeles, the woman got addicted to drugs. The lawyer who is to finalize the real-estate deal turns out to be a childhood admirer of hers who is to teach the spoiled young woman some good old values. The plot gets out of hand when she starts fantasizing about being suspected of spying when her land was a battlefield during the Turkish War of Liberation over seventy years ago. The screenplay of Atilla Ilhan, one of the finest Turkish writers, is rather badly handled in this melodrama which easily jumps from one cliché to another.
