Adana (a city in southern Turkey), with its fertile lands, vast cotton fields and factories, gives hope to thousands of poor people who struggle to survive. There are richness and poverty together on these fertile lands. Aslanbas family is one of the richest families in Adana. The owner of vast estates and thousands of acres of cotton fields, the wealthy Aslanbas family lives in a large farm house.
