Two friends, Tayyar, a mafia leader, and Davut, a neighborhood coffee shop owner, move from their hometown, Eshrefpasha, to Istanbul, where they both fall for Eleni. Tayyar marries the girl, but she is actually in love with Davut. Aware of the situation, Tayyar attempts to take revenge on Davut by encouraging his foster child, Nusret to become involved in the mafia.  Nusret is forced to choose between the girl he loves and the appealing world of big money, but when a hodja is appointed to the derelict neighborhood mosque, the course of events starts to change on its own.
