"Ayhan and Murat are two young Turkish men who have migrated to Australia. Unable to completely identify with their new country, they find it difficult to throw of the traditions and moral laws of their own backgrounds. Ayhan becomes dissolute and undirected, but Murat pursues his original goal of of buying a truck. Ayhan meets Sarah, an australian girl who is attracted by his middle eastern sophistication. But holding to the traditional idea of a good wife, he is incapable of accepting sarah in her own right and continually demands more from her than she is willing to give."
