It’s the untold story of the first generation of Turkish guest-workers that moved back to Turkey and the second generation that stayed behind. This will be told through the eyes of Meral (who lives more to the Turkish traditions) and Elif, who is her Dutch counterpart. Their difference in lifestyle is one of the reasons they cannot get along well, the only binding element in their relationship is their father Mehmet. But he’s about to move back to Turkey. The sisters help him to pack his things, while fighting over their cultural differences. When they’re done, Mehmet ensures them that they can come and visit him this summer. They do, but this time to pack the things of the passed away Mehmet while the tension on their mutual relationship begins to rise…
