The story begins in 1950s. A time where excitement is in the air due to the elections' deadline, a competition that rises day by day between the Democrats and Republicans. 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. It is a story of the rebellion that social injustice creates, and where the dreams of going up in society into a higher class brutalize desperate people, but nevertheless a story in which hopes never end. The story begins with Güllü's innocent love towards Kemal which starts the process that removes Kemal from Güllü's love and onto the road to prosperity, power, and to the lady's farm.
