(Austrian language film with English subtitles)

Ayse, a beautiful 19-year-old girl from the Turkish countryside, is chosen to be married to Hasan, the son of formidable and house-proud mother Fatma, who resides in Vienna with her husband and children.

However, what soon becomes apparent is that Ayse is to be second wife to Fatma's husband. This tight-knit family go to great lengths to preserve traditional values, and although polygamy is illegal in Austria, Ayse is welcomed. Yet her presence in a country whose language and culture is entirely foreign to her immediately marks her as an outsider.

As Western societal norms and Muslim religious beliefs draw closer together in an ever diversifying family unit, tensions arise, resulting in an explosive stroke of fate.

Umut Dag's mature feature debut is a rich tapestry of swirling emotions, suppressed desires, unspoken words and uncomfortable yet pressing social and political questions.
