The plot of this romantic comedy centers on the distrustful Ateş (Kerem Bürsin), who left his family's home after his mother's death to attend a boarding school abroad, and Leyla (Hafsanur Sancaktutan), who does not know her family at all and earns money by scamming people in order to cover the hospital expenses of a person who is her only hope to find them.

"The world is spinning.. but around me!"

This is said by the protagonist of this story... Her name is Alize, she is twenty-two years old, beautiful as water... You say she is very selfish, right? Not really. None of us stay the way we were born; just as water drops erode and shape huge rocks, what happens to us in life shapes us.

The day Alize was born, her mother passed away. Alize feels guilty deep down, even though she can't say it openly so that her father Nurettin won't be upset. Add to this the compromises Nurettin makes to make her happy and you have a character who is aggressive, selfish and essentially at odds with himself. We said that Nurettin makes concessions to make Alize happy... But when his daughter runs away after hitting a mechanic, it is a break for Nurettin, almost a moment of awakening. He decides to educate his sapling before it is too late. His first goal is to teach Alize to respect other people's decisions and wishes... To do this, he proposes to Sinem, whom he has loved for years but could not take a step towards marriage so that Alize would not be upset. But when Alize learns that her father is proposing to Sinem not from him but from the solitaire ring he found in her room, all hell breaks loose!

Nurettin, a determined, stubborn man, doesn't back down on the issue of marriage; after all, how could he, should he make another concession to Alize who thinks the world revolves around her? Alize, who is not behind her father in terms of stubbornness, responds to her father's move with the same move... That is, by marrying a man she thinks her father will never accept her to marry...
