When she awakens to the fact that she’s been pregnant for 16 weeks, she asks her fellow Oya to replace her on the night she was supposed to stage a solo performance. Same night, Eda has an illegal abortion which will darken her remaining life under unsanitary conditions. 3 years later, she is now married to Cenk, a photography student, and pregnant for two months. But her pregnancy, along with the problem of a 3 year old girlchild entering her life wreck her psychology and Eda starts to comport self-destructively, scaring all who’s around her.
