During 1960s, Turkish film industry is very competitive such that Turkey produces 250 to 350 films annually. For this reason, Semih finds it very challenging to be successful in this competitive environment.

Out of pure coincidence, Semih comes across to his long-lasted friend Turgut who has just got out of the prison. He gets the film script about two sisters that his friend has recently written. He believes that his next movie based on this story could be a blockbuster.

Mine is a popular actress who has a busy schedule. She is secretly dating with a married man Reha (Yetkin Dikinciler) who is Semih’s rival in the film industry.
