Tarik (Erdal Besikcioglu) is a successful basketball player but gets injured while he is at the top of his career. He has to give up basketball. Later on, he loses everything that he has. After his lovely wife dies, Tarik tries to find peace in alcohol and ignores his two daughters: Melis (Almida Ada) and Zeynep (Leya Kirsan). Eventually, he loses the custody of his children.

Before Tarik loses his trust on the life, he finds a second chance out of pure coincidence. He gets an opportunity to win the custody of his children if he starts a stable life. Tarik finds a new job in a public school in a poor neighborhood and agrees to make a basketball team in a month.

For this reason, Tarik tries to do his best to convince 4 students who seem to be promising at basketball: Hakan (Cem Yigit Uzumoglu), Fikret (Baran Bolukbasi), Ali (Kaan Sevi) and Sadik (Hakan Ummak). However, he needs to gain their trust first.
