A bit of a Don Juan, Fikret illegally sells roses in the traffic jam on the Bosphorus bridge that links Asia and Europe. At the same time, he is striving for a regular job in the old downtown of Istanbul. Umut drives a shared taxi passing the Bosphorus bridge every day. He is searching for a better apartment to rent in order to satisfy his wife, whose desires are beyond his earnings. The traffic policeman Murat, who is stationed at the Bosphorus bridge, feels alone amidst the solid lines of cars. Each night at home, he logs on to the internet seeking for dating chances.
