Zeynep (Hande Dogandemir) is a beautiful high school student who has a moderate and ordinary life with her mother Demet (Ebru Aykac) in a small city. Zeynep has been raised without knowing her father but she always think about him when she stays alone. She was told that her father was a seaman and was lost in the sea when he was on duty.

When Demet’s job does not go well, she decides to go to Istanbul with her daughter in order to have a new life there. Since they have lost everything, they want a new start immediately. Demet’s childhood friend Jale (Deniz Turker) who is living in Istanbul starts to help them when Demet and Zeynep arrives at Istanbul. Jale is a director of one of the well-known colleges in Istanbul: Sayer College. She helps Zeynep to be registered in this college. Although school fee is so expensive, Zeynep is accepted to this college with a scholarship.

In her new life, Zeynep has to endure lots of difficulties. While she is trying to adjust to her new life in Istanbul, she also tries to get along with her shallow, privileged, rich classmates. Kerem (Kerem Bursin) is the king of the school and no one, not even the teachers, dare challenge him. He is handsome, arrogant, and the son of the owner of the school. From the start, Kerem persists on bullying Zeynep and tries everything to force Zeynep run away from his school. However, he does not know that Zeynep is a really insistent girl who never gives up. Also, there is another girl, Melis (Yagmur Tanrisevsin) who is in love with Kerem and fort his reason, does everything what Kerem wants. Baris (İsmail Ege Sasmaz), on the other hand, is a close friend of Kerem but he does not tolerate Kerem’s attitude towards Zeynep. That’s why, Baris starts to help Zeynep and stays next to her all the time.

As the story develops, Kerem and Zeynep begin to find themselves attracted to each other.

On the other hand, as the story develops, it is revealed that Cihan (Emre Kinay) who is a sports teacher at school is a real father of Zeynep. This secret buried in the past not only changes the life of Zeynep but also changes the life of Melis. This is because, Melis is the daughter of Cihan and she does not want to share his father with another girl.

In this story, you will explore friendship, family relations and modern college life. How long the bullying of Kerem continue? Can two people who come from different worlds love each other? What will happen when Zeynep learns that his father is alive and standing in front of her? Will Zeynep find happiness in her new life?

I think they should close that college and turn it into a mental hospital, almost all characters are criminal or psycho. Not even a normal person

Hey guys Ive found the Turkish subs from the TV channel’s hearing impaired cite . I dont know Turkish but I used google translate toolkit to translate the entire file. (It takes 3 minutes). Wheres the best place to post the subs? I’ll post the original Turkish ones so you guys can get a more accurate translation when you translate it into your own language.
