1941, Zonguldak, Turkey. Under the heavy burden of World War II, due to the Obligation Law, every male between the ages 15 - 65 within Zonguldak and its adjacent towns has been obligated to work in the mines.

In the center of this turmoil, there are two poets, in their early twenties: Muzaffer Tayyip Uslu and Rüştü Onur. Their biggest dream is for their poems to be published in Varlık literary magazine and to become famous.

Meanwhile, Behçet Necatigil, literature teacher of Zonguldak Çelikel High School is the only person that is mentoring, understanding and befriending them.

When they see Suzan, daughter of Zikri, a prominent rich businessman of the town, the young poets become mesmerized by her beauty. They make a bet on her: Both will be writing a poem and have her read them. Depending on whose poem Suzan likes the most; the other will be stepping aside.
