Storyline: Hicran and Melek grew up together in the same small town. A couple of decades after they reunite and rekindle their friendship even though they both grew up to be very different from each other.

Hicran (Tilbe Taşlı) is a community college grad in Turkey who lives with her imam father and is searching for a good job. Her friend Melek (Didem Balçın) works at a nightclub and is back visiting the neighbourhood where she grew up.
