Having heard that if he can build a house in one night on unclaimed land, there is a law that will permit him to keep it, Kerem (Sven Wolter) feverishly mortars a house together in the dead of night in a Turkish coastal village. It's too bad, really. The land he has built on is not unclaimed, as he thought, but belongs to the government. His new home is soon torn down. Undaunted, he tries again, this time with tacit encouragement from the villagers, who find his antics fascinating. They are even more favorably disposed to the project because he has gone out of his way to be helpful to his neighbors in every way he can think of. Despite this, he has incurred the wrath of one mean-spirited old man, who resents it that he left aside repairing something for him in order to save a girl from drowning. Into this nearly idyllic scene comes Kerem's hard-bitten wife, who grudges his help to his neighbors and is constantly upsetting the local people. After a while, she takes off for Germany, leaving their children behind. Just when Kerem has begun to recover from this (and from the drinking bout it induced), the awful shrew returns with an infant child. She claims it is his, but the villagers tell another story.
