Kuzgun, an eight-year-old boy, lives happily with his family, including his trusted police officer father, Yusuf. However, their lives take a tragic turn when Yusuf and his colleague, Rifat, attempt to apprehend a drug lord named Sheref. Despite Sheref’s offer of a bribe, Yusuf refuses, while Rifat succumbs to temptation, betraying his partner. As a result, Yusuf is imprisoned, leaving Kuzgun’s family vulnerable.

Facing threats from Sheref’s gang, Kuzgun is abducted but manages to escape, only to find his home deserted. Forced to fend for himself on the streets, he carries the weight of his shattered childhood.

Two decades later, Kuzgun emerges, fueled by a burning desire for vengeance. Despite advice to let go of past hurts, he embraces his pain, transforming himself into an instrument of retribution.
