Ebru’s life suddenly changes when she finds out that she has breast cancer. She is now facing a situation which is hard to comprehend. While trying to cope with the trauma and wavering between tendencies to defy, to look for a remedy, or to give up, she starts to meet other people who had the same disease: Nurcan, a football player whose occupation was labeled as “manly”; Sergun, who suffers from a “women’s” disease; and Nuray, who has struggled against cancer while pregnant … Inspired by all these people with different stories, Ebru will be, from now on, in solidarity with them. Together, they start a struggle to challenge every hardship in this long-drawn journey. While seasons change, their friendship and solidarity will turn into a dance.
