“Going to Adana as a lecturer, Şahsu is determined to confront her grandfather, who left her mother behind years ago. On this journey, she finds herself in the middle of an unusual and mysterious community called Mar, descended from Shahmaran. Believing in the legend of Shahmaran, one of the greatest symbols of love and wisdom, the Mar race awaits the completion of the historical prophecy with the arrival of Şahsu. Nothing will be the same again when Şahsu’s path crosses with Maran’s.”
The series’ plot does take its inspiration from the Turkish folktale of ‘Shahmaran’.
The line “This tale started with betrayal centuries ago” opens the short video clip. It then delves into a mythical tale. The history of ancestors creeps back and intertwines with the story of Sahsu.
