36-year-old Alis starts living in his car after his father kicks him out of the house. He shaves on the street, eats the food his mother brings over to his car, and applies to job adverts that his mother marks in the newspaper for him. After a series of rejections, he finds himself working door-to-door marketing Karnaval brand carpet cleaners. In this new adventure of his, Alis meets a wedding cake-maker named Demet. She lives with her father ever since her mother’s death, and dreams of riding on her motorbike and moving to Istanbul where she would open up a bakery shop. Contrary to Alis' introverted nature, Demet is petulant, but Karnaval is the one who is the dream-maker.
