Efe is very successful at work. He has been working to arrest a mafia leader Kartal (Uraz Kaygilaroglu) for the last 6 months but cannot find enough evidence to put him behind bars.
Kartal lives in a Romani neighborhood called Cingirakli. He is a gypsy crime boss who is responsible for protecting that neighborhood. He has night clubs, runs illegal casinos and operates online gambling websites.
