For this reason, Ruksan (Hulya Darcan) is very nervous and thinks that if she gives birth to a girl again her husband Ethem will be upset and that the balances in the family will change. While her husband is out of town, Ruksan gives birth to another girl.
The night before in the next village a poor woman has given birth to a boy. The midwife Hayriye says that the only solution to Ruksan’s problem is to exchange the babies.
