Ebru (Ece Uslu) is a beautiful young woman who is married to Murat (Ozcan Deniz). They live in Istanbul and have a happy life with their two daughters named Ada (Ayca Aysin) and Maya (Ilayda Celik) and one little son. Murat is a wealthy guy who actually comes from a conservative and traditional family living in the South-East part of Turkey. He leaves his family behind to have a modern life with his wife and children. However, when his business does not go well, he decides to go to his hometown in order to get some money from his older brother Kendal (Mesut Akusta).
When Murat arrives to his hometown, his secret is revealed. Actually, Murat has another life which is totally different from his life in Istanbul. He has another wife named Narin (Ozlem Conker) and a son named Baran (Mert Yazicioglu) who are living with Murat’s family. Narin is a relative of Murat and for this reason, Murat’s family considers her a real daughter in law. They do not want Murat to break up with Narin and that’s why, Murat keeps going to see her once a month. However, Murat conceals this relationship from his official wife Ebru and his children.
Also, there is another secret which not only affects the life of Narin but also affects the life Ebru. Years ago, after Murat got married to Ebru, they had a baby. Their first child was a boy. Ebru was told that her child died at birth but in reality, Murat took the baby and gave him to Narin because Narin was not able to have a baby. The boy was named as Baran and was raised by Narin without knowing his real mother. This secret was never revealed.
When Murat arrives to his hometown, he starts to talk with his brother. He explains the financial situation of his business and asks for his inheritance in order to put all the things in order. Also, he tells that he does not want to continue to say lies to his wife anymore. He wants to take his son Baran to Istanbul and reveal all the secrets that have haunted him for most of his life and have become a heavy burden on his shoulders. However, his brother does not accept that, he does not want to give any inheritance and does not want to leave Baran. With anger and hatred, he kills his brother, Murat.
This tragedy transforms Ebru’s life so radically that she will never be able to go back to the way she used to live. Her life turns into a nightmare. All of a sudden, she learns that her husband died in his hometown. Also, she learns that their family business is not going well and she is not able to pay schools fees of her children. That’s why, she has no choice, but to move into his husband’s hometown. She tries to start over a new life there but the story becomes more complicated when she meets a trustworthy guy, Firat (Yavuz Bingol).
In this story, you will explore a dramatic story of a strong mother who tries to start over a new life after her husband’s death. Will Ebru learn that Baran is her son?
