Nesrin and Hatun are two Kurdish cleaning women who live in Istanbul. Their life is an endless back and forth between their down-at-heel home and the classy flats in Kadiköy where they work. Hatun is like an elder sister to Nesrim: she is a funny woman, pragmatic and a little indiscreet, obsessed with saving, with a lazy husband and a not-too-promising teenage son. Nesrin, instead, more sensitive and melanchonic, is alone with her little daughter after that her husband Cafer said “Cefo” has left her without a reason. Both them dream a better future, a job with social security, maybe a nice house. Nesrin tries to get herself out, but still there comes a point where the uphill struggle begins to put her down and the daily difficulties become insurmountable.
