She gets married to Murat without her father’s consent and starts to get involved in political fights between right-wing (ultra-nationalist groups) and left-wing opposition.
One day, there occurs a political fight at the university and one student from a right-wing is killed. Both Zeliha and her husband Murat are wanted by the police and for this reason; they start to hide in the house of Murat’s mother, Neriman (Binnur Kaya).
Neriman (Binnur Kaya) is a widow who works at the hospital as a nurse. She accuses Zeliha for letting her son be involved in political fights. When her son and her daughter-in-law come to her house for backing, she calls her brother Ayhan (Okan Yalabik) who is a police officer in Istanbul. Ayhan, in fact, secretly loves Zeliha and wants to separate her from his nephew. He has some physiological problems and kills her nephew Murat in the middle of the night while Murat is planning to escape to abroad. Nobody learns the fact that Ayhan has killed Murat.
Upon learning Murat’s death, both Zeliha and her mother-in-law Neriman find themselves in a desperate situation. However, Zeliha cannot stay at the hospital longer and escapes before the police arrive.

Kader has been in love with Mustafa (Ulas Tuna Astepe) who is the son of the village headman. Kader and Mustafa plans to get married soon and realize their dream of having a happy life together. Mustafa decides to talk with his father Salih Agha (Burak Tamdogan) and expresses his feelings towards Kader. However, Salih Agha objects to this marriage because he has an intention to make Kader as his second wife.
When Mustafa cannot get his father’s consent for the marriage, he decides to get married to Kader secretly. Mustafa and Kader plan to escape from the village together and get married in the city. However, just before their escape, Kader is raped by her prospective father-in-law, Salih Agha, the headman of the village.
In a desperate situation, Kader leaves everything behind and escapes from the village without saying anything to her lover. She wants to protect the pride of Mustafa and does not want him to become the killer of his own father.
8 months later, the lives of Zeliha and Kader become unexpectedly intertwined. Zeliha is pregnant from her dead husband Murat while Kader is pregnant from Salih Agha. Zeliha and Tahsin live together without disclosing their identities and plan to go to Sweden together. Kader, on the other hand, lives together with her cousin in Istanbul, far away from her village.

She wants to raise the baby by herself and does not want to let him go just like her son. For this reason, she tells Zeliha that her baby is dead and lets her go to Sweden.
