In her new novel, while skilfully narrating the life of four youngsters who are trying to shape their future, Sezer is taking a photo of today’s Turkey. The book that eases the heavy themes like forced marriage, parental pressure and forced displacement with hope and love, is reminding the reader about the importance of courage and moving on against all odds. A fascinating story woven with sentimental details, music and poetry.


Bahar’s mind is busy with questioning how she can construct a good future in her life full of constraints. While studying for the university entrance exam, she dreams about her platonic love Umut. Merve who’s having problems with her dominating parents and Cihan whose only dream is to enter the university are her best friends. A message coming from an unexpected person disrupts her steady life. Opening of the old wounds of her family lead to the start of unexpected clashes and confrontations.
