I cannot be a part of the war between you and your mother
The passionate love between a wealthy businessman and a poor singer struggles to survive in a battle against deep-rooted family traditions which prize power over romance.
Growing up without her mother and father, Süreyya must find her way in life alone. Proud and beautiful, she lives modestly with her only relative, Aunt Senem. Working her way to graduation at a music conservatory, she becomes a talented musician. But this independent, simple life is set to be turned upside down.
The handsome and wealthy Faruk Boran transforms the young singer’s life. Mesmerized by his charm, she finds herself swept up in a passionate romance and falls desperately in love. The successful businessman is similarly smitten and keen to introduce her to his very different, privileged life in the green city of Bursa.
The Borans are among Turkey’s richest and most aristocratic families, holding court in a picturesque mansion among forests. Here, Süreyya will battle the tough family matriarch Esma Sultan, who has brought up her four sons alone. For her, protecting the family’s power is everything.
Love-struck Faruk, determined to carve out a life of his own choosing, proposes marriage to Süreyya, unaware of what his mother has in store for him. Esma has great dreams for her favorite son, and has set her heart on a different bride, one who is in her mind better suited to the family’s deep-rooted traditions.
Süreyya’s arrival in the mansion and news of their engagement enrages Esma.
She is a stubborn and difficult woman who will resist all Süreyya’s efforts to integrate herself into the family. The path of love leads her into a turbulent world of cruelty, deception and vengeance that will reveal her strength of character.
She succeeds in becoming the family’s bride, but Esma will not remain silent in the face of this defeat. Her next move, will show the newly married couple that the war has only just begun. She will make Süreyya pay a heavy price, triggering discord between her and Faruk.
The guile and deviousness of Esma threatens at times to destroy their relationship. She will seek to drive Süreyya out of the mansion and bring them to the brink of divorce. But despite entering an unfamiliar world, Süreyya learns to adapt and gains strength from the love of Faruk.
The two women launch into a battle for control within the household. To survive she must be strong, as Esma has no intention of softening and accepting her. She will set traps to try and divide the happy couple. Faruk too, will not give in easily, and pursues Süreyya whenever she flees.
The war between Süreyya and Esma will shake the 400-year-old Boran mansion to its foundations. Faruk must decide whether his loyalties lie with the family or his chosen bride. The couple face a fierce battle between love and tradition that will test their resolve to its limits.
