Deniz and her friends have been apart for the summer and have much to tell each other. The senior boys grew tall, new albums were released, and the natural gas pipeline finally arrived in Balıkesir. Yet, the anxieties of university plans remain. When school resumes, Deniz gets closer with her friend Kaya while also growing interested in Fırat, the school counselor. She wants to prove that what she is feeling is not “the usual.” She desires a life different from her friends and parents. A song no one has heard, a hopeless love, solitude... Ankara instead of Istanbul, social sciences over natural sciences... A different world, but where exactly?
