In the first episode we assist at two main subplots. The family of the rich man Asim Sekip Kaya has organized a charitable event. It's evening and many rich people gather in the large yard of Asim's  property. Here we can see Selim Serez, Asim's son in law, a successful lawyer, then Mert, Selim's teenager son, Mira and Eylul, two very good friends. Mert likes Eylul very much but she only mocks him calling him a monkey, because he is shy. Then comes Ender Serez, Asim's elder daughter and Selim's wife. She is an architect and she works at the family company. Then we meet Faruk Beylice, Selim's neighbor, business man too, married with Sude and father of Mira and Beren. He speaks with some apparently friends and out of this conversation we learn that he has business and financial problems and that his family don't know about them yet. Mira, Faruk's elder daughter, is together with Orkun Civanoglu, a childhood friend whom everybody expects her to marry with. During the series Orkun will prove to be a dangerous person and will become mature at a certain moment when an unexpected sad event is going to come across his life.

The second subplot of this first episode shows us the main hero Yaman Koper (Cagatay Ulusoy), living in a poor neighborhood of Istanbul called Tozludere. It's his elder brother birthday and he wants to buy him a cake. He affords buying just a small one which is shared with Kenan. Kenan sees a beautiful car in front of the confectionery - it's owners are buying something inside - and profits of the fact that the car isn't locked and the contact keys are there. He gets in the car, takes Yaman with him and drives at full speed under the amazed eyes of the owners who immediately call the police. While they are taken to the police station, Selim Serez is called to come and investigate the case as their lawyer. He comes and interrogates Yaman understanding that he is not guilty. Now we can see Yaman's mother, Nevin, who is a night club singer. Kenan gets one year of prison, but Yaman is released and Selim gives him his visit card offering to help him with a job whenever necessary, because he thinks that Yaman can be a successful man if he has the chance to get rid of poverty. Then Yaman goes home where he has a tensioned conversation with his stepfather, Hassan, who generally behaves badly with his wife's boys and think that their place is in jail. Yaman leaves home and tries to sleep in a park but he is attacked by two guys. So, under these circumstances, he is forced to look for Selim and asks him for help. Selim offers him shelter and a job in exchange of the promise that he will continue his studies, despite Ender who thinks that it is not a good idea to bring a tramp inside their house.

In the same day when he arrived, Yaman and Mert become quickly good friends and then he meets Mira. Both of them like each other and feel a powerful attraction. Being very sociable, Yaman is invited by Mira at a party in that evening, and there, Orkun notices the attraction between the two and starts being jealous. In the second evening there is another charitable event and now everybody learns that Yaman comes from Tozludere, so they avoid talking to him anymore. Orkun takes advantage from this situation and tries to beat Yaman.
