Kayıp Şehir series revealed in a different language the human tragedies caused by poverty in the back streets of Istanbul, the discrimination suffered by women, gypsies, transvestites, and even blacks, the problems of workers and laborers, and the violent world of street children. The day and time of the series changed many times, but it did not reach the expected ratings. Kanal D finished the series in the 26th episode. At the same time, Kanal D, the producer company of the series, wanted to sell the series of that period to Show TV, but although Show TV wanted to buy the series, it could not buy it economically.
At the center of the story is the Toptaş Family from the Black Sea, who have just come to Istanbul.
Toptaş family is a typical Black Sea family that is connected and strong. The first painful loss of this family begins when Meryem loses her husband and the children lose their beloved father. Meryem is suddenly widowed with 6 children, 5 boys and 1 girl. Moreover, his father-in-law, who is 80 years old, lives with them. The eldest of the 6 siblings İsmail 25, the crazy child İrfan 23, the responsible Kadir 22, the only girl Seher 18, Sadık 16 who never likes to read, and the youngest Hakan is 8 years old.
Successive disasters and unexpected events gradually push the Toptaş Family towards forced migration. The family, who came to Istanbul in a hurry, took shelter in the house of Ismail, the eldest son, who came to this great city first of all.
While “Kayıp Şehir” tells the struggles of the Toptaş Family to survive, it also brings to the screen the drama of people who could not hold on to life in the back streets of Istanbul.
In the series, Aysel, who knows life, has an outspoken and strong stance, and also makes a living by working as a sex worker, is played by Gökçe Bahadır and her transgender friend Duygu is Ayta Sözeri. The Toptaş family, who later immigrated to Istanbul, became next door to Aysel. Aysel is torn between Ethem (Uğur Polat), who has a longstanding interest in her, and İrfan, who is still in love with her.
