When Nur is unable to reach her mother Meliha on the phone, she worries and decides to check on her. To her horror, she arrives just as her mother is trying to hang herself in the bathroom. The next day, Nur takes Meliha to see Nilüfer, the owner and the head therapist of a psychiatric clinic. After a long period of silence, Nilüfer manages to get Meliha to open up, and we travel in flashbacks to witness her traumatic life: At the age of 11, she witnesses her father being murdered by two men who then rape her mother. Years of dealing with this ordeal have taken their toll on Meliha but being in Nilüfer’s calming world, she starts to see a way out…

In The Red Room we meet more people like Nur, and through their stories, understand how people’s futures are affected by their past experiences. While dealing with their patients, Doctor Nilüfer, Deniz, Piraye, Murat and Ayşe take us on a journey to discover different men, women and children’s lives - and perhaps even look closer at their own problems...

Aggressive and abusive behaviours are inherited through generations. Abuse can and should be forbidden by laws and courtrooms, but how can the roots - of evil and lack of love - be re-shaped? True stories from an Istanbul clinic form this very powerful and important TV drama, The Red Room.

Airing in the most competitive slot for drama series each week in Turkey, The Red Room has established itself as the market leader achieving an average share in excess of 29%.
