While the romance is rekindled between the two, Dr. Erdem tries to find out who is responsible for the death of her grandmother, who died several years ago in the same hospital during surgery. Eylül was very close to her grandmother, since her mother committed suicide and she went to live with the old woman in the coastal town of Marmaris, on the shores of the Aegean Sea.
It is Professor Ali Asaf, secretly in love with Eylül, who inspired the young woman to become a doctor. However, a misunderstanding caused him to be expelled from the girls’ institute and move to the United States. Twelve years later, he returns to Turkey to join his father’s hospital staff. Eylül’s professionalism and talent impresses both Ali Asaf and her rivals, the doctors Oguz Dagçakrak and Selim Can, who will be hostile to her, as will Bahar, the neurosurgeon’s former partner.
