"Love makes everyone equal, doesn't it?"
Ankara. A hotel room. Two men whose lives couldn't be more different. Halit, a rich businessman, and Yusuf, a sex worker from a precarious social background. For Yusuf, the encounter begins as a familiar job, for Halit as his first experience with his sexuality. In various nights together, they test out the possibilities of an encounter. Under the protection of the hotel room walls, utopian spaces of thought emerge, which are repeatedly shaken by an irrefutable reality.
They are faced with the question: does love make everyone equal or do social background and social demands on all forms of masculinity form the boundaries of a real rapprochement?
