Dolunay (English Title: Full Moon) is a Turkish drama series broadcast on Star TV. It premiered on the network from July 4 to December 31, 2017.
Dolunay explores the theme of what makes a family a family. Is it blood and genetics, shared experiences, or simply love? Ferit Aslan is a smart and successful businessman and a born leader who is disciplined in all areas of his life from work, to fitness, to health. He is particularly strict in regards to his home and those who work in it. Nazli Pinar is a young culinary student who is hired as Ferit’s private chef and must deal with his specific requirements and rules for preparing his meals.
Outspoken, independent, and free-spirited, Nazli initially clashes with Ferit, but the two gradually form a friendship and flirtation. When tragedy strikes and Ferit must take responsibility for his young nephew, Bulut, Ferit, and Nazli (who has grown very close to the child) agree to engage in a fabricated relationship to help his chances of gaining custody of Bulut in an ensuing custody battle with Bulut’s aunt, Demet.
Things are complicated when Ferit’s musician brother-in-law, Deniz, falls in love with Nazli and Demet tries to use this to turn Deniz against Ferit. The core set of supporting characters is a mix of family and friends who are considered family who mostly help but sometimes hinder Ferit and Nazli’s relationship as it evolves from business to friendship and eventually, love.
