In Gitta Gsell's story of love and emancipation, a young Turkish-Swiss swimmer finds himself in the middle of a devastating love triangle with his male coach and a woman from his home village.
Beyto is a terrific swimmer and everybody’s cool buddy. But as the young Swiss man with Turkish roots falls in love with his handsome coach Mike, his perfect world seems to fall apart. For Beyto’s parents there is only one solution to maintain the tradition and honor of their family: he has to marry a woman as soon as possible. They lure their son into their home village in Turkey and organise a wedding with Beyto’s childhood friend Seher. All of a sudden, Beyto finds himself in the middle of a devastating love triangle: How can he stand by Mike without destroying Seher’s future?
Based on a novel by the award-winning writer Yusuf Yesilöz, Swiss director Gitta Gsell tells a multicultural story of love and emancipation – full of empathy, sensuality and summer feelings. Alongside Swiss Movie Award winner Dimitri Stapfer, the two newcomers Burak Ates and Ecem Aydin shine in their first leading roles.
