Storyline

The control of Çukur from Istanbul's most troubled neighborhoods is in the hands of the Koçova family. While the Koçovars directed Çukur, the most important rules are that they should never allow drugs. However, the current order is distorted by the emergence of a new group whose eyes are planted in this neighborhood and are prepared to break this law. When the whole Koçovalis thought they had given up, the younger son of the family, Yamaç, would return to the pit he left behind years ago to set up a totally different life, and a new era will begin. The hillside had fallen behind a pitiful life that did not think of tomorrow by leaving Çukur and his family behind years ago. She believes that she finds eternal love when she emerges, a young woman who is at least as unconscious, wounded and dangerous as she is, but as beautiful as she is. With this reunion of Çukur and Yamaç's family, this young couple who met together to be "happy as to die" will not be like they have dreamed of ... Written by ahmetkozan
