In the chaotic atmosphere of 1978, a beautiful college instructor and a young M.B.A. graduate meet. Soon they fall in love and get married amidst bloody terror ridden country. Young couple manage to escape the turbulent years of 1978-81.

In the following years, woman keeps pace with the hectic university career while hopelessly trying to solve her dilemma on what she believes right and the harsh realities of daily life. As she struggles, her ambitious husband rapidly peaks in his career with his dashing style. Soon their lives take opposite directions.

Man's ambition begins to destroy everything on its way including woman's love and respect. Woman's inner world divided by conflicting romantism is against ambition.

Neither is willing to surrender, both get involved in dead-end relation ships in order to revenge one another. As they move farther apart from each other, their relentless struggle wages on where changing times and values contrast their lives in the background.
