The young muezzin Musa visits Istanbul for the first time in his life when he is assigned to a mosque in Galata, Istanbul. Musa is lodged in to an apartment provided for him. His next door neighbors are Sister Anna and Clara who is taking care of her. An excitement and at the same time, a warm kind of sensation is emerged through the encounter of Clara, whose life is stuck between home and church and Musa, who comes to Istanbul to start a new life. At the beginning he was even hesitant to confess himself, but by the time passes, the young muezzin’s love for Clara pervades all his life. Another story emerges when Musa and Yakup, who is a bibliopole, come across at the church which Clara attends regularly.
