Synopsis

Salih (Settar Tanriogen) is an old man who sells traditional Turkish food like phyllo dough and Turkish type ravioli in his small shop located next to his house. His wife passed away when their children were so young and Salih has become both the father and mother since then. He has three children: Ece (Berna Koralturk), Egemen (Tolga Pancaroglu), and Emrecan (Ozgun Karaman).

Ece is a beautiful girl who is older than 30 years old. She is workaholic and works at a big company as an assistant director.

Egemen is a cold-hearted young man who is a successful doctor.

Emrecan is a handsome young man who is a real trouble-maker. He is unemployed and could not find a job no matter how hard he tries.

One day, the life of this family changes completely. A young and easy-going girl, Ceylan (Melis Tuzunguc), comes from Cappadocia to Istanbul in order to find Emrecan. Years before, when she was a kid, she saved Emrecan from drowning and Emrecan promised to get married to Ceylan in return. Assuming that Emrecan would keep his promise, Ceylan leaves everything behind and comes to Istanbul.

After Ceylan’s arrival, not only the life of Emrecan but also the life of other family members changes. Ceylan starts to live together with this family and tries to adjust her new life in Istanbul. Meanwhile, Emrecan discovers that it is his close friend Ruzgar (Ertunc Tuncer) who used his name of Emrecan and promised to get married to Ceylan.

  1. Suffering through season 2 on you tube with no subtitles-it’s better than nothing, at least I can see what happens even if I don’t fully understand it. Maybe I will start to learn turkish from this process! When is netflix going to get it together and get us season 2 with subtitles???

  2. Ellie Tuite

    Another lets go up the garden path by Netflix, yet another series, Season 2. Not getting this simple reality makes Netflix look like a broken train, stuck nowhere for who knows how long. Granted are reasons not connected to Netflix as to why series end abruptly. So already high possibility of abrupt ending. That has to be accept as possible, when go international tv watching. But no excuse for netflix forgetting their offerings and follow up in timely manner. At this stage starting to wonder if go back to books and live theater, tired of it now. How hard can it be to get some sort of efficiency and connected delivery, call Joe or Julie Do you speak fluent Turkish or French Great we have a few days work to translate voice over etc. Season 2 Call my Agent French stuck somewhere up Mount Blanc in Netflix land. Lot a rubbish on offer not their fault either, they should be really really happy there are good TV options,they can get to show, given the collapse of standards in english speaking industry. If it happens again, I’m off, I’d rather spend time learning Turkish and French than the start stop, fine if have it within 6 months, but its all in the who knows, que sera, that makes it totally pointless. That said, they forget compromising, not going back to watching drivel for sake of it, already hardly watch tv series, Netflix brought this activity back in opening up options by subtitling. Rant done.
    Love the Series. Love the live and energy, Love the sense of humour, Love the ease between the Actors or so it looks Well done

  3. Cute movie. I believe the whole cast except the cute little boy used Gods name in vain. Totally unnecessary! I won’t recommend this movie to family or friends, because of that reason. It’s a shame that a lot of Turkish movies feel the need to do that!!!

  4. The movie was cute, except for using Gods name in vain. Everyone took turn cursing God. I’ve noticed a lot of Turkish movies and series do that. I don’t get why the writers think that’s necessary or funny for that matter. I would love to recommend some of these to my friends and family, but I don’t think I should, because of the language. They do usually have a good story line aside from that.

  5. I feel the same way as Natalie…I found season 2 of what happens to my family but can’t understand with no subtitles on YouTube I have tried to find out when it will come to Netflix.

    • first go on help.netflix.com to get the 6 digit work order # that will automatically show. then call Netflix at 866-579-7172. tell them you’d like to see the last episodes of series 1 and see all episodes of series 2 of Baba Candir (or What Happens to My Family). they submit the request for you. i just called and asked if it helps if there are multiple calls. she said ‘yes’.

  6. There are numerous season 2 full episodes on Youtube and the first one is very confusing b/c the dad is looking at the wedding pics and he is in them. I can’t figure out if the writers want us to think that everything just resolved. There are lots of trailers as well for other episodes that show the dad alive, well and in a relationship, so I think the illness must resolve somehow. Anyway- the youtube versions don’t have subtitles, so unless they push out season 2 to Netflix I will be in the dark. That said, I do like looking at a few clips and seeing that for the most part, one and all are married, have babies and are happy!

  7. So upset by the ending. It also left a lot of supposition as to how everything turned out. We were robbed of the weddings and of the possibility of the doctor and his wife possibly reconciiling but the most disaapointing was how you left the Dad out just wandering around and wondering “Who am I”? What? That was so cruel. Was he diagnosed with Alzheimer’s and how could he just pass all of his physicals without that being noticed. His son is a doctor for heavens sake. So sad because I absolutely loved this drama up to the end. What happens to Ruzgar? What happens to the Aunt and her daughter. So much possiblilities thrown away

    • Are you kidding me? I watched 41 episodes and now feel part of their family and that’s how season 1 ended? I watched and waited for the weddings enduring wayyy too many breakups only to be cheated out of enjoying the weddings minus the endings drama. I was really hoping to be rewarded with a satisfying day of wedding celebration and happiness. I can’t believe I can’t even find Season 2 in English. How disappointing.

      What a great cast though and I enjoyed Haluk the best! He got funnier with each episode. Boo on episode 41 though and I guess I will never see the rest unless Netflix runs it.

    • This is just the end of season 1. Just wait and see how season 2 develops.

      • I called your department and they were absolutely no help. Is there any indication there will be a season 2 with subtitles? Really would like to see this ending.
