Plot of the Turkish series Deception
Güzide Yenersoy is a respected family judge living in the Turkish city of Istanbul. She has been married to her husband for more than 30 years and together with her two children: son Ozan and daughter Oylum. Apparently, they form what could be described as an impeccable family. But, as you will see in the series, things are often not what they seem.
Her husband, Tarık, is a successful and experienced lawyer who runs his own law firm. As for her son, Ozan, he is an engineer and works for a prestigious construction company, while her daughter, Oylum, today studies medicine in Holland, a career her mother insisted she pursue.
From the outside, the Yenersoy family has an idyllic life based on trust and affection, but the reality is totally different from this false situation.
Although everything seems to be on the right track, Güzide is unaware that the previously buried facts will come to light again.
Each and every member of his family, whom he loves dearly and to whom he devotes his time and his history, deceives him.
On the one hand, he does not know that Oylum has decided to move to the USA to fulfill his dream of studying modern dance. Her daughter now counts the days until her departure to New York, her family friend Tolga, whom she met by chance at the airfield, secretly becomes her companion.
Ozan, after failing to get the promotion he had hoped for, follows his friend’s advice to find simple money. He will invest money entrusted to him by a friend of his father in the cryptocurrency business. A bad business, since overnight she loses most of the money she borrowed.
But it is her husband who commits the greatest betrayal. A betrayal that will change Güzide’s life for life.
Tarık has a second family, which he has kept secret for five years. The moment her husband’s betrayal is revealed, Güzide realizes that your whole life is a hoax.
But… she won’t stand idly by. Quite the contrary.
Güzide Yenersoy is a respected Istanbul family judge who believes she has a successful 30-year marriage, a son who is a construction engineer and a daughter studying medicine in Holland. Apparently, everything is perfect for this family, but the reality is very different. Their daughter plans to move to New York to follow her dreams of modern dancing, and their son is in trouble over a failed investment in cryptocurrencies.
But what shocks Güzide the most is her husband’s betrayal, when she discovers that he has been hiding a second family for years. This leads Güzide to realize that her life is one big lie.
