In order to earn lots of money out of this business, Hakan finds the shirt on their storage room and decides to meet that woman without informing his adoptive father. However, something unexpected happens.
When Hakan goes to the meeting place with a shirt with talisman, he is attacked by unknown people. During the fight, his adoptive father who has chased him secretly is shot.
