A Woman Scorned (Madd Entertainment/BBC Studios)

(Drama, 90+x45 min.) When Asya met Volkan, she was alone in her own world. Her parents passed away when she was quite young. Although they left her a hefty inheritance, Asya had no family to call her own. Volkan changed all that after he proposed to her and just after she finished medical school, they settled in Volkan’s home town. Volkan’s family became hers, and his friends became her friends. On this foundation, they built a happy marriage and raised their son, Ali. Years later, Asya’s medical practice was thriving and Volkan’s construction business seemed to be growing. Life couldn’t be better—until Asya found a long blonde hair on Volkan’s scarf. She discovers that Volkan had an affair with a young woman, Derin. Worse, she finds out that all their friends knew about this relationship, but no one ever told her. Compounding these multiple betrayals, Asya finds out that Volkan’s business has eaten up her inheritance and left the family with huge debts. Asya realizes that she has been living in a web of lies. In this story, Asya refuses to be a victim of her life and she dedicates herself to get her revenge on her husband and everyone else who betrayed her.
