Bir Başkadır Synopsis

Ethos tells the story of Meryem, a part-time cleaner from a conservative family who lives on the outskirts of Istanbul. She experiences fainting spells and consults Peri, a psychiatrist whose background is dramatically different from Meryem’s: she is educated, wealthy, and secular, and holds prejudicial views of openly religious people. Peri herself sees a therapist, to whom she complains about the growing conservatism in Turkish society. The series presents a variety of characters, including a rich but depressed playboy, a middle-class Kurdish family, a soap opera actress, a rape survivor, an ex-soldier, and a hodja and his closeted gay daughter, all of whom are somehow connected through Meryem, and together showcase the diversity of Turkish society.
