Through it all, Yaman somehow manages to keep his soul pure and never succumbs to the darkness that surrounds him.

Things get complicated when Yaman meets Rüya, a beautiful girl from the rich side of town. Her boyfriend nearly overdosed, and it’s up to Yaman to save him. He delivers Rüya’s boyfriend to his mother who is a senior doctor. Later, after the boyfriend beats up Yaman’s best friend in retaliation for exposing his drug problem to his mother, Yaman goes to his home to take revenge. That is when Yaman realizes that Rüya’s boyfriend is his brother, and he is actually Ali Soysalan, the boy who was kidnapped 15 years ago. Caught between the family he made and the family that was stolen from him, the road ahead is uncertain. 

"The Brave" is the story of Halil İbrahim Karasu, who returns to the Black Sea village of his birth.

But when Yasemin is murdered by Rızvan’s son, his mission takes on a whole new direction: Halil becomes a one- man army with the sole purpose of destroying Rızvan Leto.

Halil gains some unexpected allies as he works his way though Rızvan’s criminal operations, including Rızvan’s daughter Zeynep. Zeynep wants to move on from the illegitimate life, and once she learned the truth about what her family did to Halil she had no choice but to help him.
