1941 Zonguldak, Turkey. Under the heavy burden of World War 2, due to Obligation Law, all men between the ages 15-65 within Zonguldak and its adjacent towns are obligated to work in the mines. Two poets - Muzaffer Tayyip Uslu and Rustu Onur, who are in their early twenties have the dream to become famous poets. Meanwhile Behcet Necatigil, literature teacher of Zonguldak Celikel High School is the only person who is mentoring, understanding and befriending them. When they set eyes on Suzan, the daughter of a prominent rich businessman of town, her beauty mesmerizes the young poets. They make a bet that both will write a poem and hand it over to her. Depending on whose poem she likes the most, the other will step aside.
