At a time when she feels all alone, she meets Sarp, whom she falls madly in love with. After some years of happiness, Bahar loses her husband too and she is left with only two things that makes her hold on to life: her children, Nisan and Doruk.

Together, she is able to turn life into a game, poverty into fun and absence into joy. She believes that when one has a smile on their face, the heart also responds with a smile.

Her biggest aide in the face of all challenges that life lays out in front of her, is the great love they had with her late husband Sarp. She talks to him about all her troubles, remembers their days together at every moment of her life. These memories serve as a bridge between her past and present. However, they also prevent her from building bridges into the future as there is no place in Bahar's heart for another love and relationship.

When her mother, Hatice, comes back into her life after twenty years, Bahar has to face her past and realize that those days were not as she remembered them.
