Sasha is an attractive young Ukranian woman who finally decides to end her dead-end relationship with a married man. Cemal, bound by tradition to marry a girl he’s never met, is dragged by his uncle and cousin from Turkey to Kiev for a decadent bachelor party. When their paths cross at a nightclub, everything changes for these two lost souls. Sasha, who dreams of having a child, sees a one-night stand who she can use to get pregnant. Cemal is immediately drawn to Sasha’s confident independence, so unlike the women back home. Despite the cross cultural barriers, the chemistry between them is undeniable, soon blossoming into the deep emotional experience of true love.
