Merjem-Meri, an unambitious,
30-year-old homemaker and mother to 8-year-old girl Mila, moves back to her
parental home after 10 years of marriage. Soon after, Meri realizes she is
stuck in a circle of provincial rules and expectations and a complex
relationship with her ambitious mother and spoiled younger brother. Her hope
to get the custody of her daughter wanes from day to day because she has no
chance of finding a permanent job. The only thing that makes her happy, but
also makes everyone else look down on her, is participation in an audition
for a film role in her neighborhood.
