As a family in dire financial straits, they have no choice but to settle in the slums. The story revolves around the individual struggles of the family members to survive in the metropolis. İsmail (Tugay Mercan) is the oldest one among the siblings. İrfan (İlker Kaleli) is an aspiring soccer player who is desperately in love with the prostitute living next door named Aysel (Gökçe Bahadır). Kadir (Nik Xhelilaj) is a responsible young man working at a local dry cleaner. While Seher (Elifcan Ongurlar) is the only girl in the family who is about to start college, Sadık (Taner Ölmez) hates school and prefers to hang out with the gang in the neighborhood. Hakan (İhsan Berk Aydın) is the youngest of them all. As the members of the Toptaş family try to adapt to their new environment, the big city puts them to an unforgiving test.
