Year 1977, a September morning in Ankara… Yılmaz tries to rush his pregnant wife Neriman to the hospital and he crushes into Omer’s car. This accident causes Omer’s pregnant wife Inci, who was in the back seat, to have a preterm labor. The babies are born on the same day. They see each other for the first time… This accident is the threshold of the coincidences that bring Ozgur and Deniz together. They come across in Ankara several times during their childhood and youth. Each confluence causes drastic changes in their lives. They become each other’s puppy love or their first heartbreak… But beyond this, each confluence changes their route of life. Not only theirs, but also their families’… They sometimes cause disasters, sometimes miracles. However, they can never be together. Whatever it is that brings them together, manages to build a transparent wall between them. Until they come across in Istanbul, 25 years later… While the movie “Love Likes Coincidences” tells the hurdled story of Ozgur and Deniz, who meet in Istanbul in 2010, it also goes back to times that build the present time with flashbacks. By taking 70s, 80s, 90s and 2000s Turkey as a background, the movie lives on sinking popular culture elements, music, life styles and habits of those eras. The movie promises an unforgettable LOVE story within the nostalgic journey from Ankara to Istanbul compiled from many different real life stories.
