Sevda Kuşun Kanadında Synopsis

Love On Bird’s Wing (Sevda Kusun Kanadinda) is a tragic love story that takes place in 1968-the 1970s in Turkey.

Tumay (Deniz Baysal/Sevtap Ozaltun) is a young woman who comes from a wealthy family. She is leftist and fights against capitalism while her family supports the opposite of her ideologies. Her father Zafer (Yavuz Bingol) is a high-ranking police officer and tries to keep his daughter apart from political unrest in the country.

Tumay is a university student at Istanbul University Law School. She fights against capitalism together with her friends at the university. She is idealist, rebellious, and fearless. Despite her father’s disapproval and her nephew Isik (Muge Boz)’s warnings, she often participates in political protests and tries her best to change the world.

Arif (Murat Unalmis), on the other hand, is a young man who comes from an ordinary rightist, conservative family. After his father was killed when he was a little child, he has been raised by his aunt (from his father’s side). His aunt takes care of Arif as her own son and wants him to get married to her daughter Zeynep (Ergul Miray Sahin). Both Arif and Zeynep do not like this idea because Arif considers Zeynep as his sister while Zeynep is in love with Arif’s close friend Mustafa (Derda Yasir Yenal).

Arif belongs to a conservative environment and lives according to Islamic rules and culture. After graduating from Islamic high school, he passes the university exam successfully and is registered for Istanbul University Law School. He eventually fulfills his dream of studying at law school in order to take revenge on his father.

Tumay and Arif come across for the first time at a protest against an American officer’s visit to a Turkish mosque. Arif tries to prevent violent acts of protestors in order to protect children around. When the police arrive, Tumay is arrested for being involved in the protest while Arif is brought to the police station as a witness. These two young people support conflicting ideologies and do not get along well with each other from the start. However, they meet again at the university and their destinies intersect out of pure coincidence.

Even though Arif and Tumay come from different family backgrounds and different ideologies, they come across to each other again and again. Arif does not want to be involved in political conflicts but no matter how hard he tries he gets drawn into political conflicts. The story becomes more complicated when Arif and Tumay fall in love with each other as time passes.

Love On Bird’s Wing (Sevda Kusun Kanadinda), tv-series story is about two young people Arif and Tumay who are in love even though they support conflicting ideologies.
