Kuzey (Kivanc Tatlitug) and Guney (Bugra Gulsoy) are two brothers who have opposite characters. Kuzey is rebellious, fearless, and impatient. He finds himself in trouble most of the time because he can’t control his anger. On the other hand, Guney is hardworking, responsible, calm, and patient. They are so different from each other just like north (which means Kuzey in Turkish) and south (which means Guney in Turkish). Even though their characters are separated, these two brothers are closely bound to each other. A new page opens in the brothers’ lives when Cemre (Oyku Karayel) moves to their neighborhood. Kuzey, Guney and Cemre become close friends and spend most of their time together. Their fates come to an intersection when both Kuzey and Guney develop a deep love for Cemre. The day before the university entrance exam, Kuzey decides to reveal his feelings. However, he is devastated when he learns that Guney and Cemre are going out already. That night, Kuzey goes outside and gets drunk in order to forget everything. Unaware of his brother’s feelings, Guney blames Kuzey for causing a trouble again and wants to bring him away. However, on the way, he gets into a car accident and kills someone. This car accident turns everything upside down. Kuzey confesses to his brother’s crime and ends up in jail while Guney is left alone in his remorse of letting Kuzey confess to his crime.
After four years in prison, Kuzey regains his freedom again. However, he understands now that he will not be able to regain the life he once had. He realizes that his only dream of becoming a soldier has been taken away from him. He also realizes that after those four years he is the only one that has lost everything. Therefore, Kuzey blames his older brother, Guney, for taking everything good in his life away from him. He blames Guney for destroying his future, for getting their mother’s love, and for stealing the woman he loves. He wants to punish those who hurt him and decides to take his revenge.
