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.

In What Happens To My Family (baba candir – father is a life) tv series story, you will explore an ordinary family with a self-sacrificing father and his selfish three children. It also talks about the conflicts between old and young generations. Will Ceylan fulfill her childhood dream of being married to Emrecan? Will Ece manage to forget about her past and find love?

  1. Does anyone know where I can watch season 2 with English subtitle. I have tried to follow the tips but it is still showing Turkish. I went on the web, chose the drama, then episode, I then clicked the YouTube icon, then tried to searching other languages but there is only Turkish.

  2. I just discovered that there was a season 2 of Baba Candir available without subtitles on YouTube. Then I discovered the instructions here on how to have YouTube translate the episodes. Thanks so much for these instructions, they work great!

    • Hello can you please let me know how to obtain the English subtitles as well. Thank you

      • As stated in the instructions, proceed as follows.
        1) Go to the web page at https://engelsiztrt.tv/
        2) From the dropdown at top right, select Baba Candir and then click the Git button
        3) Select your episode from the Episodes dropdown now displayed and then click Git
        4) Start the show
        5) Click on the settings icon at the bottom right of the video, you might need to move the cursor to see it.
        6) Select the subtitles option. You want to choose the “auto-translate” option; that will give you a second dropdown where you can select English.
        7) If you only see Turkish as an initial option, select it and then try again to see if you can get the auto-translate option. I had to do this on my first attempt.

        I ran these steps a few minutes ago and it definitely works. Good luck.
        6) Select

  3. I’m almost done with season 1 and I’m going to die without seeing HALUK if I can’t find Season 2 with English subtitles….UGH! Why can’t Netflix just release the entire series?! So frustrating!!

  4. Ahhh so frustrating. I’m loving this series and now season 2 isn’t on netflix and there are no subs on YouTube I’ve set my captions to English in settings but it’s still only offering me Turkish when playing the video.
    Oh y oh y….

  5. Yes I agree with you all. My whole family and friends here in sydney there’s 68 of us want Series 2. I called Netflix who said i must get everyone to fill in the Customer Request Form to make Netflix reconsider. The customer support lady said we need at least 100 people!!! So lets all do it – it is a fabulous show with great actors and great directors too. Its a shame that it is only on Youtube without subtitles. Im following all the actors on instagramme too hoping they can advise me too….
    Anyone else got any ideas???

    • HI EVERYONE.

      YES. I FINALLY GOT IT. WE HAVE THE ENGLISH TRANSLATION.

      PRAVENNA’s INSTRUCTIONS (backed by Rachel) WERE ALL CORRECT (SEE HER RESPONSE BELOW AT MARCH 3rd 2019) WHO FOUND THE ENGLISH SOLUTION – BUT IT NEEDS VERY CAREFUL READING OF THE INSTRUCTIONS.

      I GOT IT RIGHT AFTER TRYING 5 TIMES and READING IT AGAIN AND AGAIN.
      I WAS MISSING 1 STEP – I WAS NOT GOING BACK INTO THE YOUTUBE LINK AT THE BOTTOM RIGHT SIDE OF THE SCREEN AFTER GOING INTO THE ENGLISH LINK SITE. THIS THE IMPORTANT PART I KEPT MISSING BECAUSE THIS GIVES YOU THE ENGLISH OPTION……

      So this is how I got it.

      1. I did this this procedure on my Lap Top or my Computer. Then I connected it to my TV.
      2. Start by Click on the link. htttp://ENGELSIZTRT.TV. (See Pravenna’s Post below or type it the browser yourself)
      3. Then scroll down and Find and Select the TV Series (Baba Candir). It will default to Episode 62. So scroll down and select Episode 42 to play the Series BUT also this is to start the English PROCESS.
      4. Then Importantly, (as detailed by Pravenna & Rachel too) at the bottom right hand side of the TV Series Screen, select YouTube again to watch the TV Series Baba Candir on You Tube. You must switch to You Tube or the English option will not be available. (That was my constant mistake that I kept missing!!!!).
      5. Then while watching the TV Series IN YOUTUBE, Click on Settings.
      6. Then click on Sub-titles. It offers Turkish and also Auto-Translate. Select Auto-Translate.
      7. Then select English or the Language you want from the long drop down Menu of Languages.

      That’s IT.
      One more question.
      There is a Blind Reader feature that I cannot switch off: It is a Commentator for the Blind that keeps a constant loud Audio Commentary occurring… does anyone know how to switch that commentary off?

      ANYWAY – THANK YOU TO PRAVENNA, RACHEL & UMUT OZGUR: you were all very helpful and Pravenna – YOU FIXED THE PROBLEM. WELL DONE. My family are all enjoying the Series and our favourite characters (Haluk) again.

      THANK YOU AGAIN.

      Regards

  6. I see that I am not alone. Just finished episode 41 of season 1 on Netflix and looking for the rest. Very disappointing not to have the full season available, esp when you are paying a monthly fee. Why even list it as an option if it’s incomplete….very annoyed.

    Anyways, love this series! Haluk Bey is hilarious and steals the show for me, but each character is wonderful and so amusing in their own way.

    • Hy so m not only one plzz anyone tell mee where to watch it all.. plzzzz I m in love with it I have been searching for it everywhere

  7. I am completely in love with this drama, especially because each and every cast in this series are wonderful actors who give so much life to their characters. I wish I will have the opportunity to meet them in real life some day and congratulate them. I agree with some of the other comments here that it’s not admissible to curse God, and in many scenes the characters use such words. I also feel that scenes of prayers should have been included in the series. After all the purpose of man in this world is to worship Allah.
    There was one particular episode where Ece, Nermin and Bahar wear scarves and humiliate Mujde in her painting display event. Lots of Muslims around the world wear scarves because it’s the command of All Mighty God. So you cannot use scarves to portray someone as if they are uneducated or uncivilised. A scarf makes a woman complete, it’s a symbol of her love for Allah and the prophet and it’s a constant reminder of the Islamic beliefs. So this particular episode should not have had these characters wearing the scarves to portray them as uncivilised people. Other than that, this drama teaches us the struggle parents go through, how youngsters are to behave in front of elders and how they should treat each other with kindness and respect.
    Waiting for season 2 to arrive.

  8. Very disappointed that Netflix did not bring season 2.We are left hanging with no ending to more than one show eg Resurrection .

  9. Well it’s May of 2019 now, and I too, am wondering if Netflix will finish the Baba Candir series for we English readers. Note to Netflix: My own preference is for reading the dialogue in English, rather than have someone whose voice doesn’t fit the actor dubbing the English voices. There are benefits to reading the words–one doesn’t have to turn up the sound & wake up one’s spouse. Great! I do like to turn up the sound at times when I can to hear the lovely voices, the singing, the music, and to learn how to pronounce everyone’s name.. All of the actors in this series are so wonderful! Everyone is so talented. Believable, heart warming, if sometimes exasperating story line in that the characters get to be frustrated in life so often–but in a way, “that’s life.” I love the life lessons—the family values.. I’ve learned to love some Turkish films & t.v. series & the tremendous talent so many seem to have there.. Give us more Netflix please–and please finish this story. For a long time I was a streaming holdout–shows like this would convince me to stay. God bless to the cast wherever they may be!

    • Hello Karen. Go to ENGELSIZTRT.TV (type this to your search bar) / Go to the top right it says “Dizi seciniz”(pick your tv series) click arrow .You will see “Baba Candir” (father is a life) 17 th option from top to bottom.
      Click ” settings” then click “subtitles” click “options” right top hand side. choose your preferred language and enjoy:)
      There is a commendatory for blind folks,you can not deactivate that but it does not bother me or my wife.

    • I also would like to add one more thing. Once you do everything above mentioned,you also change the episode box because it directly takes you to final episode so click the box says “final 66.bolum” and bring it back to 42.episode which is the first episode of second season.
      Good luck everyone!
      Please pray for me and for my wife.

    • We just finished epi 41 and are wondering the same thing

  10. I tried in YouTube settings it would not give me a choice for english subtitles. only turkish

    • Me too. I tried everything suggested by you Praveena… are you sure?? I selected the Baba Candir TV Series from the top menu, then selected episode 42. Then selected bottom right corner menu of: No Subtitles, Automatic or Turkish only!!! There is No English!!! Where did you see the English Option??? Many of us followed your advise but it is not available. Is it available maybe on only a Computer maybe NOT an iPad or iPhone??

    • You have to go to the setting on the right bottom corner. Select subtitle, then auto-translate, and that will give you an option for different languages.
      I just tried and it worked for me.
