Ayla has a request to make: Yusuf must perform the sacrificial rite his mother, Zehra, could not fulfill before she died.On their way for the saint's tomb, they are obliged to spend the night in a hotel. Caught up in the atmosphere of a wedding party at the hotel, Yusuf and Ayla find themselves drawn together.
