The distribustion is completed by Uraz Kaygilaroglu in the role of Gediz as well as several other actors in secondary roles (see below).

The story of Sefirin Kizi, the ambassador’s daughter

Sefirin Kizi is the story of a poor family son, Sancar, who falls in love with Nare, the daughter of an ambassador. They are then only children and get to know each other on a beach in Bodrum. Sefirin Kizi is the story of an impossible love, of children and teenagers who are opposed to each other, but who will make this love live on for years. But on the evening when they finally meet again and when their life together was supposed to begin, Nare suddenly disappears in the middle of the night without anyone seeing her again. This love became the subject of a poem and a song, which are repeated in the city. Nobody knows what happened to the ambassador’s daughter. Some say she flew away in the night or fell into the sea; others say she fled to Europe. The song written about Sefirin Kizi says that the ambassador’s daughter turned into a bird and flew away.

This is the plot of the Turkish serie Sefirin Kizi. The ambassador’s daughter, Nare, who had disappeared on her wedding night, suddenly reappears 9 years later, on another wedding night, that of Sancar Efe. She brings with her the fruit of their love, their daughter Melek. Gediz, Sancar’s best friend, will also fall madly in love with Nare and find himself caught in the fire of love that unites Nare and Sancar.

Nare (Neslihan Atagül) is the daughter of the ambassador. The story of the first episode of Sefirin Kizi begins while Nare is in Montenegro, where her father is the ambassador of Turkey. Nare has a daughter named Melek. In the first episode of Sefirin Kizi, Nare stabs a man she knows well. Thinking she has killed him, she takes her daughter and flees to Turkey. She gets on a plane to the city of Moğla. On this plane, she meets Gediz (Uraz Kaygilaroglu) who is returning to Mogla for his best friend’s wedding which is to take place that evening, the wedding of Sancar Efe.

Nare’s goal is to bring her daughter Melek to Sancar, because Sancar is Melek’s father, but he doesn’t know it. When Nare arrives at Sancar Efe house, she sees that he is getting married. She lets the wedding ceremony go by and then appears in front of everyone. Then presents their daughter Melek to Sancar.

Nare plans to leave her daughter Melek to Sancar before flying away (committing suicide).

Plot, synopsis of Sefirin Kizi

The story of Sefirin Kizi is a sad one. Nare and Sancar Efe met when they were children. Over the years, their love grows. A love at a distance because of Nare’s father’s position as ambassador. They only saw each other during the holidays, but that didn’t stop their love from growing. Sefirin Kizi is the love story between the ambassador’s daughter and the farmer’s son. The wish of Nare and Sancar Efe was to get married as soon as Nare turned 18. But their plans will be disrupted because of akin who has lived with Nare and his father since his parents were killed as children. While Nare saw him as his brother Akin had other plans.

On Nare’s 18th birthday, she tells Akin that she bought a plane ticket to join Sancar in Turkey in order to marry him. But Akin will rape Nare that night! The Ambassador’s daughter tells the facts to her father, but he doesn’t believe her (or rather decides not to believe her). Akin is a rich heir, which suits Nare’s father who is addicted to gambling).

Nare, who was only 18 at the time, decided to file a complaint against her rapist, but without success. Daughter of the ambassador, the police warn her father. Nare runs away and nevertheless joins Sancar.

Nare and Sancar Efe marry secretly (non-civil marriage), but Nare does not tell Sancar that she was raped. On their wedding night, Sancar realizes that Nare is not a virgin and automatically infers that she has cheated on him. Sancar does not let Nare tell her what happened and does not believe her. He thinks that Nare, the woman he loves, has cheated on him, the peasant’s son.


Devastated, Sefirin Kizi decides to end it all. Rejected by Sancar, Nare climbs to the top of a cliff and throws herself into the void.

In the story of Sefirin Kizi, the ambassador’s daughter, Nare undergoes numerous operations to recover from her injuries. But what connects her to life is the fact that she is pregnant and gives birth to a little girl, Melek (which means “angel” in Turkish).

For his part, Sancar Efe does not know what happened. Convinced that Nare has cheated on him, he thinks that she continues her life and that other men have entered Nare’s life.

In the first episode of Sefirin Kizi, the ambassador’s daughter, Sancar became rich and is associated with the man who became his best friend, Gediz. Sancar is about to marry a young woman chosen by his mother. It is during this marriage that Nare appears accompanied by their daughter Melek.

The legal streaming platform Netflix has several Turkish series in its catalogue that can be streamed, but for the moment the series Sefirin Kizi, the ambassador’s daughter, is not included.

Sefirin Kizi’s theme music

The music for the theme tune of series Sefirin kizi was written especially for the series. The song is entitled Alacanin Efesi and is performed by Yüksel Baltaci. The lyrics of the song of Sefirin kizi, the ambassador’s daughter, were written by the scriptwriters of the series Ayse Ferda Eryilmaz and Sedef Nehir Erdem. As for the music, it was composed by Gökhan Kirdar.

Here are the lyrics of Sefirin Kizi’s song :
Alaca kuş uçuyor
Al boyanmış kanıyor
Alacanın efesi
Yörük dağı karadır
Efem sevda kanatır
Alacanın efesi
Sefirin Kızı eyvah
Bağrımda sızı
eyvallah
Sen peri kızı eyvah
Efemin yası
eyvallah
Alaca guş uçtun mu
Efe pişman oldun mu
Alacanın efesi
İnanmazsan sevdana
Sevdan sır olur sana
Alacanın efesi

Sefirin Kizi, a love triangle?

Nare et Sancar sont amoureux depuis toujours, mais Nare a disparu soudainement sans que l’on sache pourquoi au début de la série. Depuis son départ, cet amour ne s’est pas éteint. Sancar finit par se marier avec Menekse. De son côté Nare lorsqu’elle revient, rencontre Gediz qui va devenir son meilleur ami et qui est aussi le meilleur ami de Sancar. Mais Gediz tombe amoureux de Nare.

Throughout season 1 of Sefirin Kizi, the fans were divided. Does Sancar deserve to be reunited with Nare, or would Nare be better off with Gediz?

On social networks [especially on twitter], those who are for the couple Nare Sancar [NarSan] and those who prefer the couple Gediz Nare [GedNar] confront one another.

For me, I think that Sancar has made a very big mistake that is irreparable. He didn’t believe her and didn’t trust her.

  1. Frustrating to find Ambassador’s Daughter (with Tuba and Engin) series that can be watched with English subtitles. Hope that NETFLEX will pick this up. Watched Black Money Love 22 times (sometimes back to back) and picked up something new each time. These two work very well together.

  2. When to be available on netflix? I watched black money 5 times ,i do love it,hope to release more episodes and nee season ,i love omer and elif very much ,i miss watching them.may we request black money producers to make additional season .

  3. Engin and Tuba are nice couple to watch,i admired them so much.Looking forward to extend additional season and more episodes for Black Money ,i do love seeing them with kids .

  4. Please have more Turkish series with English subtitles on Netflix. I have watched Black Money several times!

  5. The whole story runs around this guy who didn’t get a virgin on his wedding night so he kicked the girl out of his house even though she claimed she was raped (very sensitive issue for half of the world’s population. Actually even talking about it in some cultured may sensor this review :)) . Anyway, the rape did not matter to this so called crazy in love man.

    After the lover married another girl, and had his virgin, then he realized he no longer is obsessed with virginity and wants both women around.

    The question remains , is this the believe of all Turkish men or the fantasy of few men writers even though they added a confused woman to the list of the writes ?

  6. I would who’ve to see them ambassadors daughter in Netflix. I love to see Engin and Tuba, they work so well together. Looking forward to more series with this couple

  7. You need some good marketing and networking to get English subtitles on Sefirin Kizi as it’s sooooo frustrating not to be able to view this series!!! I’ve resorted to watching this in Turkish in the hope I can get the vague gist of what is taking place but it’s proving difficult

  8. Love to watch Engin and Tuba. Please make another movie not only in Netflix but also here in USA.

    I can’t wait to see them again.

  9. Has this series been dubbed in Hindi / Urdu as yet as fans of Engin and Tuba are eagerly waiting to watch the pair together onscreen again after Kala Paisa Pyar.

    • unfortunately no, there will not be a third season of the series (la hija del Embajador/the ambassador daughter).
      It has ended. but in some country they split the second season of the serie. So for exemple, when Nare leave the serie, it’s the end of the second season for them and the part where Mavi (Tuba) joint the serie would be the third season.
