Adana, Turkey is an agricultural city and home to the fictional Aslanbas family, one of the region's wealthiest and most respected. The clan amassed its fortune decades ago as cotton farmers; since then they have expanded into other ventures, including construction, shipping, and manufacturing. The Aslanbas employ thousands of workers, and their products are distributed throughout the world.

�mer (Erkan Petekkaya) oversees the family's enterprise, a suave, decisive, and intelligent 32-year-old businessman. After receiving his education in America, he returned to Turkey to replace his elder brother, Halil (Altan Erkekli) as the company's president. Halil dreams of traveling the world, but realizes that he will never escape Adana. He happily stepped away from corporate life, and spends his time crafting model sailboats and children's toys.

G�lizar (Bet�l Sahin) is Halil's materialistic and superficial wife, who wishes her husband would live a more sophisticated life. She is dreadfully arrogant, belittling servants and anyone she deems unworthy of her presence. In stark contrast, �mer's potential wife, Ceren (Sezin Akbasogullari) is a kindhearted woman who enjoys spending time amongst the field workers, and even dons traditional clothing while doing so.

Despite Ceren's love of �mer, she hides a dreadful secret from him involving the murder of his mother and father. Her most trusted friend, a lawyer named Diyar Kaya (Esra Kizildogan) comforts Ceren amidst her severe depression and recurring nightmares. Piece by piece a complicated story of love and betrayal unfolds between two different families, while �mer and Halil's second youngest brother, Mustafa (Mehmet G�ns�r) is the first to be caught in the crossfire.
