Asi is a story of one impossible love. To love and to be loved but still not to be able to find happiness...Two people were separated from the fiery river of the past. While strong love each other, they are enemies because of sins and mistakes of others. "I ran away from that look of love" ... - such is the fate of two lovers.
Asi is about the love story of Asiye 'Asi' Kozcuoglu and Demir Dogan. Asi is called after the river 'Asi'("rebel"),that pass neatly through the city centre of Antakya. People called the river rebellious because the river flows from the south to the north unlike the rest of the rivers in the region. A young man named Demir, who after a long absence returns to his hometown Antakya - rich, handsome, successful ... Demir and his family buried in these lands a secret. It will cause both families to survive the most difficult trials. It will roll over their lives ...

Only a miracle saved her two offspring. Boy who has hidden the pain in his heart and her girl who will be injured for life ... Why can not the past be forgotten?
One scientist says: "In these places there is only the past ... Here are buried treasure and love epic dramas. Could the greatest love drama in the distant past to resurrect these days? The young man hopes that over time his feelings will be shared.
For three generations the Kozcuoglu family owns a prominent plantation there. Keeping this farm alive is their foremost goal. The owner Ihsan Kozcuoglu and his daughter Asi work and live for their land. Years ago Demir's aunt, Sühelya, and his mother were workers on the Kozcuoglu farm until his mother drowned herself in the nearby river Asi. Demir returns to his hometown as a rich businessman. Still embittered about the circumstances that drove his mother to her death, he meets Asi and is immediately drawn to her.
