Because the 45-year-old man has the mind and emotions of a 5-year-old kid. With his toy car, childish jokes, and behaviour, Kadir is like a kid, in an adult costume. He's the way he is because of the umbilical cord that was wrapped around his neck when he was in his mother's womb. Kadir was born as a "test", both for his parents and his child. At least, that's what Zeynep's grandpa says to her. Zeynep dreams big, and she tries to get away from the troubles of her aunt's house; from her shakedown in a small room in which neither she nor her cousins can fit; from her uncle, who blames them and oppresses her aunt; from her aunt's enraged exhaustion; from the impossible; and poverty.
