As teenagers, Eren, the daughter of a powerful member of the parliament, and Reyhan, the daughter of the keeper in the summer house Eren’s family owns on the Istanbul island of Büyükada, had a forbidden love affair. When their relationship was revealed, Eren’s family forced them to separate. They sent Reyhan and her father away from the island and Eren to a boarding school in Europe. The two women haven’t seen each other since. 20 years later, Reyhan is back on the island and lives with a man younger than her. Eren catches a glimpse of Reyhan on a local profile on social media, which prompts her to leave Europe and come looking for her. The two embark on a day-long journey around the island, exchanging passionate words and long-hidden feelings about the ramifications of their forbidden relationship, to try and lift the old spell while taking a trip down memory lane.
