Adana, a big city in Southern Turkey, 1949. Muzo, a young man, is experiencing a terrible heartache. He is in love but his love is baffled. He will finish his studies in five or six years and wanted to marry the girl he loves only then, when he was a "big man", worthy of her. But the young lady's father did not agree. He preferred any son-in-law rather than a well-read one like Muzo much later. And now that the wedding procession of the girl who will never be his passes him, Muzo remembers his childhood...
