Ayten is a Turkish political activist who escapes from a Turkish prison and ends up on the run in Germany, trying to find her mother who has moved there and makes her living as a prostitute. When Ayten ends up on the street with no money she is befriended by Lotte, a rebellious university student who gives her shelter and offers to help her find her mother, greatly displeasing her own mother, Suzanne. Lotte and Ayten become lovers and when Ayten's illegal status is discovered and she is deported to Turkey and once again imprisioned, Lotte follows her there and tries to free her.
