Emin Saruhanli is the patriarch of a crowded family living together in a small town in Izmir. Proud and hard as nails, Emin rules his family by a rigid moral code. He even let his son go to jail for an internal family dispute rather than speak up for him with the police.

Emin’s strict life is turned on its head when his estranged brother dies in a plane crash along with his whole family. Emin hadn’t spoken to his brother in years, and in that time Mehmet Ali Saruhanli becomes one of the richest men in Turkey. As his only living relative, Emin is now the head of the powerful Saruhanli Holding Company.

Relocating to Istanbul, Emin and his family undergo a radical change in circumstances, as the trappings of wealth and power transform their lives and threaten Emin’s dominance. Joining them is Emin’s headstrong son Kadir, now out of prison and challenging his father at every turn. On top of everything else is Emin’s secret struggle with Alzheimer’s disease, which threatens to disable him before he can settle his family on their new path.
