Brave and Beautiful is a Turkish thriller series produced by Ay Yapım that was aired on Star TV (Turkey) during 2016/2017 season.
Cesur Alemdaroglu (Kivanç Tatlitug) comes back to Korludağ, a small town outside of Istanbul with a mission: to take revenge from Tahsin Korludağ (Tamer Levent) because of their family enmity. The only thing that he didn’t take into account was falling in love with Sühan Korludağ (Tuba Büyüküstün), the beautiful daughter of the man whom he believes that killed his father. Sühan is an independent and successful businesswoman who creates her own brand of perfumes and glass products. Fiercely loyal to her family, Sühan doesn’t fully trust Cesur at first, but as they discover the lies and misdeeds of Korludağ one after another, she finds herself torn between her father and the man she grew to love. Cesur realizes Korludağ has many enemies around him when things take a more dangerous twist as Riza Chirpiji (Yiğit Özşener), the killer brother of Adalet Korludağ (Nihan Büyükağaç) a.k.a Korludağ’s mistress, was released after a 30-year jail sentence. A huge game of cat-and-mice unfolds as Cesur and Sühan find themselves unwittingly involved in a long historical family feud. Will Cesur and Sühan be able to stand firm in their love despite all odds?
