After traffic police stop Yunus and his friends who are slightly drunk, he takes a taxi and leaves his friends behind. The taxi driver gets dizzy and crashes the car. Yunus, despite being in a hurry to attend his own wedding, takes the taxi driver to hospital. When he gets out of the hospital, a couple begs him to take them in "his taxi" to some place. Everyone thinks Yunus is a taxi driver and he finds it increasingly difficult to refuse to take people to places.
Towards the end of the film, Yunus meets an older woman arguing with a construction worker who is asking for an exorbitant amount of money to cover her wall with plaster of Paris. Yunus decides to do the job instead of the worker. After mixing water with plaster of Paris, he sits to have a rest and starts to daydream. The mixture quickly hardens and he gets stuck in it. Ultimately, a forklift truck takes Yunus with his feet stuck in the tray to the wedding place.
