Devastated by a break-up, our unnamed Turkish transvestite heroine swaps her catsuit for pyjamas and becomes a recluse.  But her friends refuse to let her waste away in self-pity and drag her out to make up the numbers for a party.  There's serious grooming to do before our girl's up to the challenge - her state of misery has left her so thin that even her favourite Audrey Hepburn number doesn't cling the way it should.

At the soirée, she becomes entranced with a powerful married man, but it seems unlikely their paths will cross again.  Until a body is found - the gigolo victim is connected to her latest crush.
