When her mother abandons her family, Nilsu loses faith in the world and everyone in it.
Then she meets Teo, a passionate environmentalist and one of the founders of the Turkish Green Party.
Teo's close relationship with his own mother has always held him back, and when she commits suicide, his life slips off the rails.
In this story of a young woman's struggle to find love and acceptance, Buket Uzuner explores the complexities of human relationships while offering up an original reinterpretation of the role of both environmentalism and love in the world today.
