Ali Nazik (Uğur Yücel) who moved to Istanbul from the village, dreams of becoming a famous folk singer and seeks the help of music producer Mr. Muhsin (Şener Şen) to release an album. A classical Turkish music enthusiast, Mr. Muhsin, unhappy with the changes in the city and the effects of arabesque music, is determined to live by traditional principles and values. Only when he assists Ali Nazik on his way to fame, his lamentations of a city “filled with kebab and lahmacun shops” leave him faced with the new realities of Istanbul.
