Scorpion (Inter Medya)

(Drama) Perihan Emgen, her daughter, grandchildren and her son-in-law Fikret, who she only tolerates for her daughter Berna, live under the same roof comfortably and prestigiously due to Perihan literally clawing her way to the top. Ferda is also the daughter of Perihan Emgen—she was abandoned at the age of one. She runs a hair salon with her daughter Merve and is deeply loved by all the women in her neighborhood. Ferda blames her mother’s abandonment for all of her troubles. Her step-sister Berna is married and has three children. In a quest to avenge her mother, Ferda has an affair with Fikret, her step-sister’s husband. No matter how much Perihan tries to prevent this relationship, she never succeeds. Ferda is determined to take the life that was taken from her. And while doing so, she accidentally causes the death of her sister. Perihan’s granddaughter Duru, who studies in the United States, arrives at the house for the funeral. While the Emgen household is mourning the death of Berna, Ferda pays the family a surprise visit with Merve. Calling Perihan “mother,” she shocks everyone in the family. Now, everyone in the family finds out Perihan’s secret. Ferda’s stubbornness and Perihan not wanting her causes a great war between the mother and daughter. This war will also change the lives of Ferda’s neighbours Ipek and Aras and will drag all of the young ones to a drift between love and hatred.
