A sea captain that is frequently out of Istanbul on one of his trips, Ali Akarsu (Erkan Petekkaya) is the head of the Akarsu family. His wife Cemille (Ayca Bingol) is a patient gentle creature that is the main reason that this marriage has worked for so long. The children are Berrin (Yildiz Cagri Atiksoy) a law-student at Istanbul University, Mete (Aras Bulut Iynemli)- an aspiring and talented singer/songwriter, and Aylin (Farah Zeynep Abdullah) also like Mete in high school, and finally young 5 year old Osman (Emir Berke Zincidi).

After one of his exceptionally long trips Ali returns and seems restless. Cemille has her suspicions confirmed when she finds a letter to Caroline in Ali's clothes. Ali has started an affair with Caroline (Wilma Elles) and this brings trauma to the whole family in many different ways. What will Cemille do now that she has found out about Ali's affair? Who will Ali ultimately choose; Cemille the mother of his children or his lust for Caroline? Can his children ever forgive him for destroying their family?
