While Irfan is about to get promoted as a dean, he is slandered by his colleague and is discharged from the faculty. After 20 years of academic career, he finds himself unemployed. Even though he applies to the court, Irfan cannot prove his innocence right away. Thus, all his bank accounts have been blocked throughout investigation until he is declared innocent at the court.
Meanwhile, Irfan’s 7-year-old son is diagnosed a brain tumor and is required to have a surgery immediately. Now, Irfan and his wife face another obstacle. They need to gather money in a very short time so that their son could have a successful operation.

Eventually, Irfan and his friend Egemen make a plan and decide to swindle Suleyman. After they get money, Irfan would go to the USA for his son’s surgery and Egemen would leave the country. However, their lives are challenged numerous times.
