Italian designer Francesco (Alessandro Gassman) inherits a Turkish bath in Istanbul from a long-lost aunt. Frustrated with both his business and his emotionally detached wife, Marta (Francesca D'Aloja), he discovers that the bathhouse is a beloved local institution and that his aunt was equally treasured by her customers. Deciding on a whim to stay in Turkey and run the bathhouse, Francesco discovers something new about himself, courtesy of the young assistant caretaker (Mehmet Günsür).
