Plot of the Turkish series Scorpion.

The plot of the series Scorpion revolves around Perihan, who was a single mother who met a man with a lot of money. This woman, falling in love with that man, victim of his charms (perhaps monetary), ends up marrying him.

However, contrary to what a good mother would do, instead of taking her only daughter with her, she chooses to abandon her and go to live far away where she tries to make a new life as if nothing had happened.

But the problems that are created and tried to be ignored, time takes them and at a certain moment brings them back to be faced and/or solved. And this is what happens with Perihan, who over the years meets again with Ferda, his daughter.

But of course, this reunion is far from being a loving reunion and provoking hugs; on the contrary, the encounter unleashes a real war between mother and daughter, since there is a pain that burns in the daughter’s chest, a victim of the irresponsibility and lack of love of an indolent mother.

Thus, the reunion begins the way most meetings of absent parents with their children do, with a single reproach and a single question that yearns to be answered as soon as possible: Why did you abandon me?

Thus begins a war between scorpions, full of betrayal, pain, curse and love.
