Starring Hilal Altınbilek, Uğur Güneş, Murat Ünalmış and Vahide Perçin will likely begin airing in the new drama season of 2018/2019. The story is based on Terrence Malick`s movie “Days Of Heaven” in which a farm worker convinces his lover, who pretends to be his sister, to marry the rich farm owner so that they have a claim on his fortune after his death. They marry and the owner stays surprisingly healthy. Of course feelings get tangled.
While the american version is set in 1916, “Once upon a time in Çukurova” will be set in the 1970s. Two young lovers, dreaming of marrying, must flee after trouble befalls them, hiding their identity. Moving from Çukurova to Adana, they start working at a farm and pretend to be siblings to avoid gossip.
The first two episodes have been already shot. Since the release date got postponed, they stopped shooting for a while. They started filming again. From the third episode onwards the director changed.
