The first episode of the drama ‘Yalnız Kurt‘ went on air on 28th January 2022 on ATV Türkiye. Below is the story in English:
Davut Bahadır has been living in a forest for many years. He used to serve in the army in his youth where he earned the title Kumandan. A flashback to the 1960s reveals a village being plundered and its villagers killed. The only survivors are two young boys, Yavuz and Khalid. Davut takes them both to an orphanage and vows to revenge the death of their father, Kemal Yıldırım who was the main target of the attackers. Davut’s investigations unveil a local, Fettah Dahhak the main culprit who has been acting as an American agent against the state. Fettah’s grandfather was expelled from his native village for treachery against the state and now Fettah has chosen the same abominable path. While Kemal Yıldırım was acting as an informer to the state intelligence. Perhaps he knew some secret against Fettah for which he had to sacrifice his life.
Some years lapse and Kemal’s son, Yavuz has grown up into a man. While hunting with his young son, Yiğit, he leaves a lone wolf unhurt. When his son questions him as to why he spared the wolf, Yavuz states that the lone wolf is not dangerous for them and advises his son to always support the weak against the powerful and never become a tyrant. When back home, some attackers kill Yavuz and his wife while injuring the young Yiğit. The wolf Yavuz had spared then rescues Yiğit’s life by saving him from the harsh weather. When Davut visits the cursed house, he finds Yiğit in an unconscious state. He takes care of the young boy for a month and then leaves him to the authorities after having a successful test of his courage.
The scene then turns to the present where Yiğit has assumed a new identity, Altay Kurtoğlu, and has become a boxer. He defeats an American boxer in the cage while a gangster, Doğan successfully puts his bet upon Altay. While the fight goes on, Doğan’s wife, Esra searches for a friend in the building. She finds him in the tortured state who reveals that Fettah and his men including Nizam and Doğan are after every person involved in the Kemal Yıldırım case.
Esra runs from the building leaving him to the mercy of Doğan’s men. It seems that Doğan is not her first husband and she has a forceful relationship with him. During her run, Altay rescues her from Doğan’s men and then both search for Esra’s daughter, Ela. Altay takes Esra to Davut’s hermit where she stays during the night. The next morning, she reaches her friend Saadet’s house and finds Ela there who had taken refuge there. Doğan too arrives there to take Esra while Ela hides and runs again. Esra tries to justify her action of running from the building last night. Doğan puts her in tight house custody and goes to meet Nizam who suspects Esra of accompanying the enemy (the man whom Esra was searching).
Altay appears in Esra’s room and both escape the tightly secured house. Esra catches a bullet during the run and dies when both reach Davut’s home. Altay goes to search Ela while Davut buries the dead body. Altay gets a clue of Ela’s whereabouts and reaches an abandoned building. There, he is surprised to see Esra pointing a gun at him. On the other hand, Davut vows to reinvigorate his battle against Fettah Dahhak despite past defeats.
