Asli (Rabia Soyturk) is a cheerful young girl who goes to high school. Unlike her older sister Beste (Hazar Motan), she cannot be controlled by her mother. She is rebellious and wants to make her own decisions. After graduation, she plans to go to France in order to study at Law School even though she dreams of becoming a dancer. With her strong personality and rebellious nature, Asli resembles her mother Alanur (Nurgul Yesilcay).
Alanur is a very strong, modern, and attractive woman. She has grown up in a wealthy family and works as a manager of an art studio. Alanur has done her best to raise her two daughters by herself after she got divorced.
Alanur has a dominant character and wants to control everything. She wants to give a happy life to her daughters and wants them to become strong and independent. But sometimes, she takes some drastic actions. Due to her attitude, her daughters complain about Alanur’s cold-hearted nature.
Alanur, in fact, turns into a frozen heart after she is abandoned by her first lover years ago. She becomes devastated when she gets a farewell letter from her lover. She buries her heart, gives up her dreams, and agrees to the marriage his father wants. After then, she lives without love and passion.
Years later, Alanur comes across her first and only lover Ziya (Selim Bayraktar). Out of pure coincidence, her daughter Asli falls in love with the son of Ziya. The lives of two families turn upside down. They have to open the unclosed notebooks of the past and scratch the encrusted wounds buried in the past.
Ziya is now married to Seher (Bennu Yildirimlar) and has three children: Mehmet (Emre Kivilcim), Selcuk (Kerem Alp Kabul), and Mine (Elif Uslusoy). He never forgets his first love but does his best to become a good father and a good wife for his family. Even though Seher has been in love with her husband since she was a young girl, she can never conquer his heart. Therefore, she becomes a woman with a broken heart and struggles with another woman’s shadow all her life.
Alanur does not approve of the relationship between her daughter and Ziya’s son. She learns from her own experiences and tries to keep his daughter away from Mehmet in order to keep her safe. Whatever is left unfinished years ago becomes an obstacle to Asli and Mehmet’s love this time.
Meanwhile, Ziya also does not approve of the relationship between her son and Alanur’s daughter. However, Seher understands that she cannot persuade her son. Thus, she decides to stay beside her son as if she approves of this relationship. In fact, she secretly tries to separate them. She takes the pain of the jealousy she has held inside herself for years out of her daughter-in-law.
Asli and Mehmet challenge everyone, try to overcome all obstacles, and heal the wounds of the past with the power of their love. However, their lives become very difficult because they need to find a balance between their loves and their families.
