Bekir is mad for Uğur. Uğur is enamored with Zagor and Zagor's passionate for committing crimes.

Zagor is released from jail. A sultry summer night, one mishap followed another and a murder is committed in the neighborhood. Same night, Uğur vanishes.

The homicidal crime, though being the forerunner of the dark and cruel days waiting for Uğur's young and pretty mother, his paralyzed father and his little brother who have lived under the wings of an affluent young man named Cevat until now, becomes a hope of deliverance from his mad love for Bekir. He marries the girl picked by his family and initiates himself into a new life.

Some months later, Zagor's killing of two policemen and being put back into jail and Uğur's return to Istanbul breed a new hope for Bekir. On the trail of a pitiless love, there began a deadly chase which will go on for years. Bekir follows the traces of his beloved down in nightspots across the province, in cheap hotel rooms, in dope bashes.

He's been shot but did not turn back. He's been shooed, he did not retreat. He's been abased, his pride wounded, he did not mind. Town after town, jail after jail Uğur trails behind Zagor and Bekir chases after him like a faithful, obstinate dog.

While everything's been wasted away for the sake of a couple of eyes and a charming visage, love has just grown stronger with the light of cigarettes put out in palms, with sufferings, with tears and wickedness.

Hearths and homes are destroyed, children were orphaned but innocence is never to be lost.
