Merhamet is a must-see series for fans of quality Turkish dizis and certainly for fans of Ibrahim Celikkol. It relates a triumphant story of a young woman’s personal battle against the fate she was born with.
Adapted from the novel, KAHPERENGI by Hande Altayli, the dizi was written for television by Mahinur Ergun. Neither a single episode describing Narin Yilmaz’s journey to escape unfathomable circumstances to become a lawyer, nor her love story with Firat Kazan, leave the viewer indifferent or unaffected. Likewise, the fate of members of Narin and Firat’s families, their friends and the unexpected ending have a lasting impact on the viewer.
