Yagmur's family is Turkish, Vivi's familiy is Danish. Both of them live in Avedøre Stationsby. They are ten years old, go to school together and are best friends. However, it won't be long before Vivi will be spending her weekends with her friends partying, while Yagmur will be at the mosque studying the Koran. At present, they can still go swimming, play discotheque and giggle at the boys. But in a year or two, Yagmur won't be allowed to wear a swimsuit in public, and going to the disco will be impossible. She has to save all her kisses for the boy she is going to marry. Yagmur dreads the future, which may break up her friendship with Vivi.
