When Adnan meets Bihter (Beren Saat), he suddenly falls in love with her. Bihter is also a socialite couple’s daughter. She wants to get revenge from her mother, Firdevs (Nebahat Cehre), because her father had died whilst catching her mother cheating on him. Therefore, she decides to marry Adnan, an older, rich and successful guy, because she thinks that by this way she can prevent her mother from marrying him. Although there is a huge age difference and although Firdevs and Adnan’s daughter Nihal (Hazal Kaya) don’t want this marriage, Bihter and Adnan eventually get married.
While searching for peace, safety and happiness in Adnan’s shore house, Bihter meets passion. At the beginning, she shows no interest in Behlul who develops a crush on her. However, as time passes Behlül and Bihter fall completely into each other and become drowned by their infatuation with each other. They start having a secret and passionate affair and their secret love affair soon affects every member of the family. In this story which is based on the work of the foremost Turkish author Halit Ziya Usakligil, you will explore a secret love affair full of twists and surprises. Will Bihter and Behlul start to love each other without fear, guilt, and regret? Will passion and love capture the loyalty? Will betrayal shade the innocence?

    I became sick and tired to watch Hollywood series -full of sex, bad language and violence. I’ve decided to switch and I’m so glad I did!
    It’s so fascinating to watch normal human emotions in it’s best – love, jealousy, dedication, fidelity etc.
