    • Bekir is in love with Ugur, who loves Zagor who loves to commit crimes. Zagor is released from the jail. When the unfortunate incidents follow one another in a hot and suffocating summer night, Zagor have a murder. In the same night, Ugur disappears too. This murder is the messenger of the dark and hard days for the Ugur’s young mother, her paralyzed father and her younger brother who lived under the protection of young and rich Cevat, whereas it is a hope for the salvation of Bekir . He gets married and starts a new life.
      However, after months when Zagor kills two policemen in Izmir and get caught, when a new hope arises for Bekir to reach Ugur, an inexorable pursuit that will last for years behind this merciless love, begins. Bekir starts to trail Ugur in cheap countryside nightclubs, third class motel rooms, in joint parties.
      Shot but not giving away. Driven away but not leaving. Degraded, his pride is hurt, he doesn’t mind. Ugur is dragged after Zagor from town to town, prison to prison and Bekir follows Ugur like a loyal, stubborn dog.
      While everything is vanishing for a pair of eyes and a beautiful face, love grows with the light of a cigarette put out in the palms, with pain, poverty, tears and badness. Families are torn apart, children grow orphan yet the innocence is never lost.
