The biggest problem of young Hüseyin (Delikanlı Sadi) is panic attacks. He has 3 successful daughters who are students and Hüseyin is very fond of his children.

A Tough Childhood of the TV Character

In his childhood, his father was always violent towards his mother, and even his father killed his mother in front of his eyes. So, this is how his panic attacks start. Yet, Hüseyin always manages to be kind and naive towards women, after his father’s story that ended up being the murderer of his mother. Thus, his mother goes to the grave, and his father goes to prison. And as for the young Sadi, he goes on the streets.

However, he cannot keep violence away from his life and builds a life in which he has acquired this profession with mobbish attitudes. He says that while he was a child he lived on the streets, he threw stones at night-lit houses. This is how he took revenge for his own motherlessness, longing for a warm home, and living in the streets.

Abrupt Visits to the Doctor

In the book version, Hüseyin never comes to the Doctor with an appointment. He comes suddenly only when he has a panic attack, with the permission of the patients on appointment and with the help of someone. Therefore, there is no conclusion about his story in the book.
