Plot Summary

A girl who grew up on the streets of the big city, in front of the apartment buildings, when the concrete had not yet pierced the sky.
The only daughter of a beautiful housewife and a meticulous lawyer: Handan. A young woman who grew up and found her own way through times when the streets were as restless as the home where she lived with her parents...

Her head and heart are full of sounds; a melody from far away, birds chirping, the sound of the train tracks, the rustle of a joyful gift package, the voice of her mother, father, grandmother, and aunt… Then, some sounds she wishes weren’t there, echoing off the walls of different houses at different times…

When we meet Handan, who appears before us as an adult woman, she will be long immersed in a story that stretches from her childhood to the present day. The story of Handan and her mother Feri, as Handan remembers her, settles into a narrative dating from the 1960s to the present day.
