Synopsis
Penniless Arda participates in a radio quiz show that will award her cash for making the acquaintance of a stranger in the park. She’ll get more money if a romance develops. The “stranger” is Steve. Arda and Steve date and he later confesses he’s fallen in love with her. Arda fears Steve will think she’s just stringing him along so she can earn the prize money. Steve finally reveals he’s the writer for the radio show and arranged the stunt so Arda would fall in love with him.
