which wrapped last year.
It's also going to air on eExtra, as an omnibus on Sundays from 15h20.
It tells the story of Sanem, who has to make a no-brainer decision in her quest to become a famous writer.
When her parents give her a choice to either get a proper job or enter into an arranged marriage, Sanem rushes to get a job as an intern at the advertising agency her sister Leyla works at.
There she gets into adventures with the boss, Can, starting a chain of events that end up with her falling in love with him.
All this happens to a backdrop of Cain and Abel, stirred with espionage.

Can she make it out with her heart intact?
