The story takes places in 13th century and tells a story of Ertugrul who is the father of the Osman I, the founder of the Ottoman Empire.
400 large nomad tents are settled in Anatolia but get through a difficult time due to famine. All these nomads want to migrate to another place where they can have a better life.
Suleyman Shah who is the leader of this group (Kayi clan) wants to give a better life for his people but he does not want to make a quick decision without considering all side effects.
Because of this reason, some nomads start to blame him for not being able to be a good leader. Even his elder ambitious son Gundogdu (Kaan Tasaner) starts to question his decisions. However, his younger son Ertugrul trusts his father decisions all the time and does not want to be involved in clan issues.
