Dilber is unable to pay the hospital expenses for her very sick daughter. She leaves Istanbul and moves to the mainland to work as a singer at a local night club. (Dilber "sings" the fashionable song "Gönül" by Zerrin Özer, but the club is a sleazy place where working-class men drink cheap wine). She is disgusted by her boss Mahmut's behaviour and sexual advances. Eventually, she steals his wallet and runs away, aiming to see her child again. While running away, she loses the money, Mahmut pursuing her at the same time. She finds shelter at the cabin of a poor fisherman named Kerem. He saves her from Mahmut, falls in love with her and they both move to another town, so that she can work as a singer again and make some money. However, she has to put up with the same behaviour of her new boss who is a hotel owner, whereas her relationship with Kerem falls apart. Finally, she manages to collect the remaining 10,000 liras by agreeing to sleep with the hotel owner. She goes to Kerem's cabin for a farewell but Mahmut comes in. Mahmut and Kerem kill each other in a fight and Dilber goes to the hospital to find out that her daughter just passed away. Although not a comedy film, the title plays to a sort of pun common in Turkish sex comedies of the period: Dilber Dudagi may literally mean "Dilber's lip" but it's also the name for a kind of sweet pastry.
