The film begins with a wedding in Anatolia, but the marriage soon reveals itself to be a sham. Ayse is to become a Kuma, the second wife of the father to her ostensible husband. Back in Vienna, the family members voice their doubts while the cancer-ridden first wife, Fatma, insists on friendship and an easing of tensions. She is bound to her native tradition, one that is not shared by her children who have grown up here. Slowly things begin calm down, until finally the illusion shatters with one blow.
