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 the adjacent towns has been obligated to work in the mines.
In the center of this turmoil, there are two poets, early in their twenties: Muzaffer Tayyip Uslu and Rüstü Onur. Their biggest dream is to be published in the Varlik literary magazine and become famous.
Meanwhile, Behçet Necatigil, literature teacher of the Zonguldak Çelikel High School is the only person that is mentoring, understanding and befriending them. When they see Suzan, daughter of Zikri, the prominent rich businessman of the town, young poets became 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 would be stepping away.
