Watch Yali Çapkini – preview

Yali Çapkini is a family drama that goes heavy on the drama. Its Turkish title translates as The Kingfisher, and it follows the trials and tribulations of an arranged marriage between Seyran (Afra Saraçoğlu) and Ferit (Mert Ramazan Demir) – the former a headstrong, independent woman who wants to live on her own terms, the latter an immature, irresponsible heir to a jewellery fortune who doesn't take life too seriously. What could go wrong?

Well, everything. Like the marriage for starters. See, Ferit was originally supposed to marry Seyran's sister Suna, who is much more docile than her strong-willed sibling. But when Ferit and Seyran meet, unaware that they are supposed to become brother- and sister-in-law, they hit it off and decide to get hitched.

Suna, understandably, is a bit miffed. Her life's dream was to marry a rich man, and to see it snatched away from her, and by her own sister at that, leaves her fuming. So she immediately starts making plans at revenge in order to win back the fortune that should have been hers.

But things are no picnic in Merit's camp, either. His brother Fuat is Merit's complete opposite, running his father's business in a responsible manner and generally living up to his father's ideals. So he's also less than happy that dad thinks marrying off Fuat will make him grow up. Expect plenty of power struggles between siblings and in-laws alike...
