“Asi” is a romantic drama that tells the story of three generations of the powerful Kozcuoğlu family, which owns a huge plantation in Antakya, a region in southern Turkey. The Kozcuoğlu family’s goal is to maintain the plantation for generations, so Ihsan Kozcuoğlu and his eldest daughter, Asi, work the land very hard. On the other hand, there is the family of Demir. Years ago, his mother Emine and his aunt Süheyla worked on the Kozcuoğlu plantation, until Emine drowned in the river under very dramatic circumstances. Süheyla then left the Kozcuoğlu plantation and Antakya and took her two nephews, Emine’s sons, with her. As time went by, Süheyla married a wealthy man and gave her nephews an exquisite education. Obsessed with his mother’s tragic death, Demir returns to his hometown, having become an important businessman. He soon meets Asi and falls madly in love with her, not knowing that she is the daughter of the one who caused his mother’s death. Little by little, secrets are revealed about the lives of both families, who are confronted by a dark and tragic past, which will hinder the romance between the young people. The name of the protagonist, Asi, means “rebel,” to honor the river in the region, which got that name because it flows in the opposite direction from others. So, the daring and beautiful Asi will have to go against the current and conquer overwhelming obstacles to save her love for Demir.
“Asi” was produced by Sis Yapim and was inspired by the classic novel “Pride and Prejudice,” by Jane Austen. This captivating romantic melodrama made its leading lady Asi (Tuba Büyüküstün) famous. Later, she became the first Turkish actress to be nominated for Best Actress at the 42nd International Emmy Awards. Tuba is currently a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador for Turkey.
