Almost a Turkish Soap Opera is a story about Adel, a young Turkish man whose family has lived an impoverished life while his grand uncle controls the inheritance money which was stolen from his father as a child. He travels to the USA, works illegally, and is deported back to Istanbul. Unable to return to the USA, he flies to Canada where he marries his Grand Uncle's spoiled obnoxious granddaughter in exchange for his status. He falls in love with his English teacher and everything spirals downward from there. How did his life turn into a Turkish soap opera?
