Deniz (27) while jogging on the treadmill feels herself bad and stops it. Her pulse is high. She sits on a sofa for relaxing. A young man who notices that Deniz feels herself bad comes close and he also sits the sofa. He says that he is a doctor and asks her permission to measure her blood pressure. After a while they both realize that they wear the same pair of sports shoes. This coincidence reinforced with another coincidence drag them into marriage at the end.

Film notes

While in the front side, ‘The Same’ seems to tell a simple love story arised from a mere coincidence, in the back side through this coincidence story it ironically tells the time and location limitations which prevent the socialization of modern man and woman and comoditization of bilateral relationships which play an important role on the foundation of most important social structure, marriage.
