Bahar and Cüneyt are a typical middle-class couple. The only thing missing, to complete the "perfect family" image they strive to maintain, is a child. But it won’t be long till the adoption process is finalized. At last the adopted baby’s arrival seems like just a matter of time and, aside from baby’s clothes, they need to prepare a photo album accounting for the false pregnancy period. Only like this - they think - the child will be able to truly love them. The plan seems perfect, until the day the couple discovers that the adoption is on police records. Cannes’ Critics Week 2016.
