Efe (Ekin Koc) is an idealistic police captain assigned to Istanbul’s organised crime unit. He is fearless, irresponsible, and unconcerned about the law. He will go to whatever length to apprehend the perpetrators and ensure that justice is served.
Efe is a hard worker who achieves great results. For the past six months, he has been attempting to apprehend mafia chief Kartal (Uraz Kaygilaroglu), but has been unable to do so due to a lack of evidence.
Kartal resides in Cingirakli, a Romani community. He is a gypsy criminal lord in charge of the neighborhood’s security. He owns and operates nightclubs, underground casinos, and internet gambling services.
Kartal is fearless in his pursuit of expanding his company. He pays attention not just to the police but also to other mafia bosses in Istanbul.
Despite the fact that Efe is aware of Kartal’s criminal actions, he lacks sufficient proof to place him under arrest.
A sequence of killings brings these two individuals together by sheer chance: a hardboiled police captain Efe and a gypsy criminal leader Kartal.
When a string of murders occurs in a Romani community, Efe and Kartal band up to track down the perpetrator.
These killings have shattered Kartal’s authority. Initially, he believes that his opponents are responsible for the killings. However, Irfan, a serial murderer, attacks him shortly after (Diren Polatogullari).
Irfan is a mystery man who appears to be shy and quiet. He works at traditional nightclubs as a saz player. To exact his vengeance, he begins to commit murders. He leaves three pennies at the crime site after each murder.
Kartal has no choice but to collaborate with his deadliest foe, Efe, in order to discover a serial killer. To reclaim his power in the area, he has to discover a serial murderer.
The narrative of the Bad Penny (Uc Kurus) television series revolves around a gypsy crime leader in a Romani neighbourhood and an idealistic police captain assigned to the organised crime branch. Will Efe be able to apprehend Kartal with adequate evidence? Will Efe and Kartal be able to work together and track down the serial killer? Will Kartal expand his business? Will Kartal be able to keep the residents of the Romani neighbourhood safe?
