Deniz (Zeynep Camci) was a very pretty and smart girl from a rich family but lost her beauty when she grew up. Yigit (Gokhan Alkan), on the other hand, was an unattractive and shy boy with low self-esteem, but became a handsome and successful editor. When Yigit went to New York with his family, these two started to exchange letters but never met face to face. Both of them were each other’s best friend when they were younger.
Years later, Deniz and Yigit decide to meet again in Istanbul. They both go to their meeting place. However, Yigit cannot recognize Deniz and assumes that his childhood friend and first love has not come to their date. Deniz, on the other hand, feels too humiliated when Yigit does not recognize her. Ashamed to introduce herself and ruin his perception of her, Deniz asks her best friend, Irem (Gonca Sariyildiz), to meet her first love, Yigit, using her name. She thinks that that would be the end of her fate with Yigit but things get complicated.
