Nuran dreams to have a happy life with Resat just like in romantic movies. However, her brother wants her to marry the rich village aga who offers a lot of money in return. Nuran strongly refuses that and for this reason, she is constantly abused by her brother. Eventually, Nuran decides to leave her family behind. She goes to Resat and tells him everthing. They make a plan and decide to go to Istanbul. But, out of pure coincidence, Nuran discovers that Resat has an affair with another woman. That’s why, Nuran becomes all alone in this world and understands that she cannot trust Resat. She never gives up, she still wants to escape from her destiny but she realizes that it would not be so easy. At that night, Nuran escape from her house and goes to the train station. She is alone and she does not know anybody in Istanbul who can help her. But, at some sense, she is lucky enough because there is someone who can help her: Kenan (Cansel Elcin) who is a young producer and director in Istanbul.
