Atiye is a young beautiful painter in Istanbul. She belongs to a well-to-do family, has a loving boyfriend, and a flourishing career. She is even going to host her first-ever solo exhibit. Everything seems to be going fairly well and like a dream. Until she gets a nightmare that disturbs her to the core. Her meeting with Erhan, a renowned archaeologist, changes everything in her happy stable life.
Erhan discovers some mysterious secrets in one of the most ancient temples on Earth – Gobeklitepe. The secret is in the form of some ancient symbols that he needs to decipher. Atiye, on the other hand, claims that ever since she can remember, she has been making that symbol. Although, she has never seen that symbol anywhere in her life. The ancient symbol lying in the ruin of the temple and Atiye are somehow connected. Her past is related to the mystery that the symbol holds and Atiye is now on a never-ending quest to find it out. Her entire life that seems perfect from the outside turns upside down.
Season 2 will explore the aftermath of season 1’s finale, with Atiye bringing Cansu back and reaching even deeper into the past. In a different present, her mother is in an asylum, and Erhan is engaged to another woman. Cansu is now called Elif. The next season will follow Atiye as she seeks to defeat the evil forces, including Ozan’s father, Serdar while protecting childbearing women.
