The city is Sofia. She is Turkish; he is Bulgarian. Her father was attacked by a gang of neo-Nazi Bulgarians; he intervened and saved the Turk's life.

And the language they use to conduct, share, exchange these new and wonderful feelings is the most rudimentary English—the language of international business is also the language for international lovers.
