An elite paediatric unit is turned upside-down when a strange newcomer joins the team. Ali has autism with savant syndrome, making it hard for him at first, but thanks to sincerity and dedication, this genius doctor finds love and acceptance and provides hope of all of us.
The series is produced by MF Productions and distributed by MADD Entertainment, and is broadcast by FOX TV Turkey. The premiere screening of “A Miracle” is scheduled for Wednesday 20 November at 12.30pm.
In “Orphans of a Nation ”, a young Syrian victim of a bombing agrees to marry a powerful sheik in exchange for money to save her little brother’s life. However, plans change due to the tragic death of the child. The young woman and her family flee to start a new life in distant lands. Abandoned and enraged, the sheik sends his right-hand man in search of the bride, but could not imagine the young man would fail to obey his command and fall madly in love with her. This forbidden love will be tested when the sheik’s daughter decides to take revenge after her father’s mysterious death.
Written by International Emmy-winners Thelma Guedes and Duca Rachid, the series was recently nominated for the Rose d’Or Awards 2019 in the Soaps and Telenovelas category. The cast features Syrian refugee Kaysar Dadour, who brought an added authenticity to his character. The screening is scheduled for 7.45am on Thursday 21 November.
