Onur is a hearing impaired young man, brought up by his mother after his father had left them. Although he has studied web-design at the university, Onur works at a library, where he does not have to communicate with people. He meets Zeynep at one of his friend’s engagement party. Zeynep had changed a number of jobs and ended up at a call center. She spends her whole day talking with people she does not know. After meeting Onur and learning that he is hearing impaired, Zeynep thinks that she can find peace at last with this man who never speaks.
