Fatmagül'ün Suçu Ne? (translated as What is Fatmagül's fault?) is a Turkish television drama series produced by Ay Yapım and broadcast on Kanal D. The series is based on Vedat Türkali's scenario,[1] Fatmagül'ün Suçu Ne?, which was made into a film in 1986, Hülya Avşar as Fatmagül.[2] The series is written by the duo Ece Yörenç and Melek Gençoğlu. The soundtrack was composed and conducted by Toygar Işıklı.[3]


Fatmagül Ketenci is a girl who lives in Ildır, a village on the Aegean coast belonging to the administrative district of Çeşme, in Izmir province. She lives with her brother Rahmi, who runs a dairy shop. She is engaged to marry a fisherman called Mustafa Nalçalı in a month's time and dreams of getting away from her nagging sister-in-law Mukaddes, who hates her. Kerim Ilgaz is a well-mannered blacksmith apprentice who lives with his aunt Meryem Aksoy, known affectionately as "Ebe Nine" ("Granny Ebe"), who is a healer of herbal medicine. The big event of the season is the engagement of the area's richest and most influential businessmen Reşat Yaşaran's son Selim to the politician Turaner Alagöz's daughter Meltem. Kerim meets up with his old friends Vural and cousins Erdoğan and Selim. After the engagement party, all four of them go on a drinking and drug binge to celebrate. Meanwhile, Fatmagül is off to see Mustafa depart on another fishing trip and accidentally comes across them. Erdoğan, Selim and Vural gang-rape her, with Kerim passed out with no recollection of the event. A traumatized Fatmagül is later discovered the next morning by Ebe Nine while she is picking herbs. Vural is left deeply disturbed by the event, having constant nightmares about Fatmagül, while Erdoğan and Selim continue on as if nothing happened, confident in their family's power to protect them. As the town go into an uproar over the rape incident, Kerim accepts the blame and agrees to marry a reluctant Fatmagül, as he mistakenly believes himself to be guilty and also in order to protect his friends. As a result, Fatmagül and Kerim's families sell their properties and move to İstanbul to start a new life.

Kerim quickly falls in love with Fatmagül, but she hates him because of the whole ordeal. Things become complicated due to the machinations of the Yaşarans and their unscrupulous lawyer, Münir Telci, who wants to protect themselves, as well as Mustafa, who seeks revenge as he believes that Kerim and Fatmagül had an affair from the beginning. As a result, both the Yaşarans and Mustafa start harassing Kerim, Fatmagül and their relatives. After a few months of marriage and several attempts to do so, Kerim confronts Fatmagül, telling her that he was not involved in her rape. However, even as she has already developed a soft corner for him, Fatmagül does not believe this, and asks Kerim to prove this to her. In order to do so and demonstrate his love, Kerim files her rape case and asks the police to arrest him, Vural and the Yaşarans, after which Fatmagül finally accepts his love. Mustafa appears once more and asks Fatmagül to forgive him, but she rejects him. Things take a turn when the Yaşarans start threatening Kerim and Fatmagül, trying to quickly finish the case and put it to rest, while also using the bitter Mustafa against them. During the trial, the Yaşarans falsify their testimonies, with Vural reluctantly doing the same. They also resort to use several bribed witnesses.
