Season 1[edit]

The new "family" has to get used to each other - which is much more complicated than Myrto and Metin thought: Elli and Dilek have to share a room, which complicates their sisterhood right from the beginning, as does the fact that Elli is an atheist and Dilek a pious Muslim girl wearing a hidjab. Myrto, who is very free-spirited, has to get used to her new role as a mother of four instead of two children, her stepson Cem, who is a bit of a macho, and her stepdaughter, who is very critical of her less than decent kitchen-skills. Meanwhile, Elli and Niko have to try to fit in at their new school, which is very different from their old school. In the meantime,their relationship with their step brothers gets worse and worse. Elli and Cem won't stop fighting and both Dilek and Elli don't like each other. Elli's best friend Katerina is away at Dubai and Elli communicates with her via videos. Strangely enough,Dilek and Niko develop a very good and loving relationship which is so not happening between Elli and Cem. Things get even worse when Alexis meets Elli at school,become friends with her and Cem has to deal with the fact that he is jealous of their relationship. Later,Alexis and Elli fall in love,and Cem tries to find effective ways to take Elli away from him. As for Myrto and Metin, they face some small problems,but get over them very quickly because of their love for each other. In the end of the season, Elli falls in love with Cem and the family is ready to go under challenges and strange situations...
