A young man framed for a crime escapes a prison sentence by faking his own death and assuming a new identity as he seeks revenge.
In 1997 Ömer Uçar (İsmail Filiz) and his family lived a comfortable lower middle-class life, until one day his life was changed forever. Ömer had two best friends that he had known for years, Ali and Cengiz. Ömer worked with Ali as a motor mechanic, and Cengiz when Ömer met and fell in love with Eyşan . Ali and Cengiz soon become convinced by Serdar Tezcan, Eyşan's father, to rob a casino. Serdar made the whole plan. In Serdar's plan, Ali, Cengiz and Eysan would rob a casino and Ömer would be blamed for the robbery by way of implanting false evidence.
Ali and Cengiz at the time believed that Ömer would only get a few years in jail for stealing the money; however, the robbery went wrong and Ali had to shoot and kill the security guard. When Ömer was blamed for the crime, the commissar went to the prison cell where Ömer was in there for a couple hours. Commissar was asking Omer about robbery, and Ömer was insisting that he was innocent, a witness was called to the stand. That witness was Eyşan, who falsely testified that it was Ömer who robbed the casino and murdered the security guard.
The plan worked successfully and all the while Ali, Cengiz, Serdar and Eyşan got away with murder and millions of dollars. Ömer went to jail and during his incarceration, Ömer had some very hard times.
In 2005, Ömer had his face badly cut by the chief and with help from old man named Ramiz, it was made known that Ömer had died but his face was unrecognisable, when actually Ömer escaped the jail and had full plastic surgery. Ömer Uçar then changes his name to Ezel and returns to get his revenge, unknown to his previous friends, Eyşan and Cengiz who are now married and have a son, and Ali who is head of security at Cengiz's hotel.
