Arif Münir is a young, megalomaniac casanova, and a captive in Princess Sadberk’s mansion due to the “damned envy of the youth”. Would he be able to save himself from this trap he fell into willingly, and find true love? What kind of secrets will be revealed by sheer coincidences as he struggles to evade forty troubles befall on him?

Forty Troubles is the unknown work of novelist, scenarist, translator, actor, and director Vedat Örfi Bengü, which have been left forgotten on newspaper pages.

As Forty Troubles uses the well-known themes and methods, such as love, conspiracy, coincidence, and mystery, it also questions certain social norms like justice, equality, wealth, and poverty with its cinematographic language.

Forty Troubles, which has been serialized in the newspaper Son Saat in 1925, is now republished for modern-day readers!
