Adapted from the award-winning Argentinian series “La Chica Que Limpia”; “Farah” is the story of an Iranian woman, who had to run away from her country and is struggling to live in Istanbul, working as a cleaning lady in order to maintain the treatment of her son.
Farah was one of the brightest students at one of Iran’s leading medical schools, until months before she had to flee. But she and her entire family ruthlessly pay the price for a man’s failure to reciprocate her love, and Farah flees to Turkey, unaware that she is pregnant with a boy. Seven years later, this bright futured woman is forced to work as a cleaning lady in order to provide for herself and her son.
Farah’s son Kerim has a disease called “balloon boy disease”. He spends most of his time at home, in a sterile room free from germs, since his innate immune system is very weak. He can only go out in his special costume for an hour or two once a week, and it takes Farah’s momentary carelessness when Kerim’s health suddenly deteriorates.
One night while cleaning, Farah witnesses a mafia murder. She begs to the hitman Tahir to let her go promising to keep her mouth shut and offers to clean the murder scene. That’s what she does best, and in order to escape death, she cleans the crime scene without leaving a trace. The following day, Farah finds out that the victim of the crime is a policeman; a dear friend to her neighbor Gonul and her big brother Chief Inspector Mehmet.
Farah decides to testify and goes to the police station where she meets Tahir, who has been detained by Mehmet. Leaving the station at once, Farah decides to leave the country, however, fate has its own way and she suddenly finds herself at a hospital. While she tries to get away, a deadly injured man is being brought to the E.R. Farah intervenes in order to rescue him, unaware of the fact, that the man she tries to rescue is the leader of the mafia and Tahir’s boss – Ali Galip. This instinctive act takes her to the middle of the mafia-police war and an unpredictable love with her hunter Tahir, at the first season.
With Farah’s son Kerim, all three together, create a family, against all odds around them. But the love between Farah & Tahir will be tested even harder at the second season when Behnam, the father of Kerim who was known as dead, arrives Istanbul to get his so-called “family” back.
