A dark comedy that's rose-tinted, provocative and inspirational. Psychologist Eylem moves into an apartment in the Istanbul neighborhood of Kurtuluş after being abandoned by her fiancé two weeks before their wedding. Her new neighbours are just ordinary women in an ordinary neighbourhood: Vartanuş who has devoted her life to her bedridden father. Goncagül who realises that her mafioso lover will never marry her. Gülnur who's resigned herself to daily beatings as long as her husband doesn't touch the kids. Tülay who's shattered every time her mother gets beaten. Hairdresser Füsun who tends to see things on the bright side. They come together to lighten Eylem's mood and in doing so transform their own lives.
