The story takes place in the early twentieth century.

Feride (Fahriye Evcen) is an orphaned girl who lost both her parents when she was a little child. She starts to attend a boarding French school in Istanbul and stays with her aunt’s family during the summer holidays. Feride reflects her pain belligerently. For this reason, she is given the nickname “wren” during her time at school for being mischievous and vivacious unlike other girls.

Although Feride has grown up without the love of her parents, she does not feel that she is lonely at all. She has many friends at school and at the same time, she has a chance to stay with her aunt’s family. Her aunt has two children, a charming young man Kamran (Burak Ozcivit) and a young girl Necmiye (Ebru Helvacioglu). Necmiye is jealous of Feride and could not stand to see her parents show affinity towards her cousin. On the other hand, Kamran is a young doctor who is very successful, hardworking, calm and cool. It seems that Feride and Kamran could not get along with each other because they often argue without any reason. However, in reality, they are in love but are not aware of that fact.

Feride always shadows her love through harsh treatment towards Kamran. For instance, when she learns that Kamran is in a relationship with a young woman, she tries to hurt him. However, as the story develops, both Feride and Kamran realize their love. They get engaged but Feride leaves Kamran the night before their wedding, upon discovering that he has been unfaithful to her. After that, Feride leaves everything behind and escapes from Istanbul. As a young school teacher, Feride tries to start over a new life but never forgets her first love.

In this story, you will explore the difficult life of a young school teacher, Feride. Will Feride live the rest of her life peacefully? Will Feride eventually forgive her only love, Kamran?

  • rosnama

    how many episode are in calikusu and how many season that drama has

    • smartandsure

      There are 72 episodes, and I believe that is the end of the story. I could tell because of the way it ended. I wanted to see them together again, but the ending hinted that they DID get back together.

  • Aunur

    Shame they won’t continue this great and well performed series next season. It was truly a great story, well acted by all its cast but particularly by Feride and Kamran who were superb throughout. The costumes and production was also of great quality.

    • Tan

      I agree, such a beautiful series, heroes… I wish I could watch it on TV channel…as well as Magnificent century.

      • HBDuncan

        So agree! Pray it isn’t due to politics! It gives us a nice understanding of historical Turkey and Ottoman/Islamic culture and life in that era.

  • Char

      • Karen Walton-Taylor

        Have you found Season 2 yet?

        • L Koshka

          Sadly it seems they cancelled it & that’s why it ends so abruptly on Netflix. Did you know Kamran and Feride are a couple in real life? And I think they made another series together, but a modern day one.

    you have to finish the novel.make a secound season. we want to see them togather

  • vivianclare

    I’ve just seen this on Netflix, and there was so much to love, but the ending really really really sucks! I don’t understand why Feride runs off without even giving Kamran the chance to explain or defend himself, without even getting a real explanation from Azelya either. And furthermore, the “infidelity” is only 1 night, after Feride has told Kamran to get lost. I’m sorry, but if you give your lover the boot, you’ve lost the right to control their life afterwards. I think Feride is hasty, impulsive, unfair, and fundamentally unwilling to trust. And I don’t understand why you would take a stranger’s word over someone you’ve known your whole life. And, she doesn’t even bother to talk to her parents. It’s so rushed, I felt that the ending spoiled everything in the series. I also don’t understand why she has to leave Istanbul to be a teacher. Are no teachers needed in the city?

    In this time of so much controversy about muslim religion and what is going on in the middle east and USA, I think this TV show is really refreshing and tell us a lot about the sensibility and love in that region of the world. Probably the authors and actors have not realized the positive deep impact they have done in the world with this show. Another aspect is the quality of the actors, excellent. And the scenery, photography, music, etc. all put together made a wonderful film. I would like to see more of them.
