Take a look at the trailer that Netflix has released for an intriguing-looking Turkish limited series titled Fatma.
The series tells of what unfolds when Fatma (Burcu Biricik, Kuzgun, Operation Cicero), on the surface an ordinary cleaning lady, commits an unexpected murder while searching for her missing husband, Zafer. She becomes an invisible killer; no one takes her to be more than an unexceptional “cleaner.”
The script comes from up and comer Ozgur Onurme, who also directs with Ozer Feyzioglu (acclaimed helmer of weight lifting champion biopic Pocket Hercules: Naim Süleymanoglu – perhaps one track down). The cast includes Ugur Yucel, Mehmet Yilmaz Ak, Hazal Turesan, Olgun Toker, Gulcin Kultur Sahin, Deniz Hamzaoglu and Cagdas Onur Ozturk.
Fatma hits Netflix on April 27th.
Fatma‘s official synopsis, from Netflix:
Produced by Basak Abacigil, created and directed by an up-and-coming writer Ozgur Onurme, the series follows the story of Fatma (35), an ordinary cleaning lady who commits an unexpected murder while searching for her missing husband, Zafer, who was just released from jail. Zafer’s dodgy underground associates soon find out what she did, and the only way for her to survive in this man’s world is to continue killing. She gets away with it too – since no one takes her to be more than an ordinary cleaner, she becomes an invisible killer. In the end, murder becomes a release for the years of struggle and grief that she had repressed, and a new part of her identity she must confront.
