What about the story of the series..? For Akgün, who grew up in a criminal world and is an emotional young man behind his dangerous and problematic appearance, this is difficult to accept.

Therefore, prosecutor Kara has to create a balance between his family and his job. Prosecutor Kara has to take Akgün, whom he considers a troublemaker, to the Justice Site in İzmir Çeşme.
