It is possible that you are looking for a TV series that is a little different from what you are used to seeing. And this is one of the reasons why many people get to know Turkish soap operas, as they show you society from a different perspective.
Now, this relatively new series that made a good impression on the public, was Cennet, known in its original language as Cennet’in Gözyaşları. A Turkish television drama of love and self-improvement that leaves no one indifferent.
Plot of the Turkish series Cennet
The story of this touching series centers on Cennet, who was abandoned as a child by her parents and raised by her grandmother, which has a strong impact on her life.
Cennet strives and works hard to be the valedictorian of her class. When she graduates as an architect, Arzu Soyer, the mother of her classmate Melisa, offers her an idyllic job in her successful company.
There she meets Selim, who identifies her as a long-forgotten childhood friend. What seems like a mere friendship turns into an intimate relationship, which Arzu Soyer does not approve of, as he plans to marry Selim to his daughter Melisa.
However, that will not be all, as later Arzu Soyer will recognize in Cennet a birthmark just like the one on the baby she abandoned many years ago. Instead of reacting with maternal affection, Arzu begins to plan how to get rid of Cennet.
Seasons and episodes of the novel Cennet
Perhaps one of the strengths of this series, is that the series is developed in a few episodes, exactly 36 episodes with an approximate duration of 140 minutes each, aired during a single season.
This can be translated as an advantage since long series often generate a lot of filler material. In contrast, all the drama that Cennet has a quick and straightforward denouement.
