When Zeyno’s both parents lose their jobs, it becomes very difficult to continue living in a big city. An old family friend, Uncle Selçuk, invites them to his garden house in a small town by the sea. While Zeyno’s father goes fishing together with Uncle Selçuk, her mother starts to work through internet. Zeyno gets used to the life in this small town. Her friendship with her new schoolmate Neşe and their explorations throughout the town introduces them to new and warm  emotions
