Asiye (Oyku Karayel) is a young and beautiful woman who has been raising her children by herself. When she gives birth to her second child, she becomes all alone. Her husband Cemal (Akin Akinozu) abandons them due to financial problems and never comes back.
Asiye does her best to raise her daughter Nergis (Iraz Akcam) and her son Ugur. Even though she works so hard, she cannot provide a decent life for her family. However, she never complains and tries to be very strong for the sake of her children.
The life of Asiye and her children turns upside down all of a sudden. Her daughter Nergis kills their neighbor who attempts to rape her. This unfortunate incident shatters their modest life.
In order to protect her daughter, Asiye decides to leave everything behind and escape from the police. She does not want to let her daughter be put in prison. Thus, she takes her children and hits the road.
Out of pure coincidence, Asiye comes across a young man Mahir (Sarp Apak) on the way. Mahir is a young businessman who has been living in Russia for a long time and goes to Istanbul to visit his family. When he understands that Asiye and her children are in a difficult situation, he becomes willing to help them and offers them a ride.
However, they make a car accident on their way to Istanbul. While Mahir is in intensive care, his family assumes that Asiye is Mahir’s wife and the children Nergis and Ugur are Mahir’s children.
Asiye and her children find themselves in a beautiful Demirhan mansion. However, rather than finding salvation there, they find themselves confronted with a new challenge. There, Asiye bumps into her ex-husband Cemal who has abandoned them years ago.
Demirhan family is a wealthy family in Istanbul. Harun (Mufit Kayacan) is the head of the powerful Demirhan family and he has two children Raci (Kaan Cakir) and Helin (Meric Aral).
Asiye’s ex-husband Cemal is now married to Helin and has a happy marriage. He enjoys his wealthy life together with his wife and his son. Whenever he sees Asiye, he pretends not to know her.
