"The man had just finished paying his last installment for his purchased house and the seller had been delaying giving him his house deed for some time. The buyer sadly dies after the earthquake and his son is unable to prove his right to inherit the land on which the house was built. The situation escalates further when the seller refuses to cooperate and provide the son with proof of ownership of the land, and it is further entangled with the love story that the seller discovers between his daughter and the son of the owner of the lost house," reads the series' synopsis posted on the cinema.com website.
The Zelzal television series will be aired on DMC and MBC1 channels during the upcoming month of Ramadan.
