Following his robbery in Bursa Grand Bazaar, Gökhan Yıldırım (22) is forced to flee to Uludağ, where he is pursued and harassed by a mysterious deer and local gendarmerie forces. After trying to escape from the mountain on the longest night of the year, Gökhan sets in motion a chain of events that will threaten not only his life but also the future of this legendary mountain.

Gökhan’s escape plan gets to a halt when he is attacked by the deer that has been following him. He shoots the deer even if it is in self-defense and gets captured by a mysterious man. After learning that he had just killed the last one of an endemic species known as “Ulular,” Gökhan tries to escape from the hands of this enigmatic man but gets lost on the dark side of the mountain.

After a journey full of headless snowmen, unknown voices, and weird visions, our hero’s fate changes when he discovers an abandoned village named Gökeren. Unaware that the monks and saints of the area founded this village 700 years ago for a specific purpose, Gökhan seeks refuge there. However, instead of being saved, he finds himself in more trouble after learning an ancient secret that has been kept from humanity for a very long time: the existence of a fifth season that is about to wreak havoc on the world!

Gökhan learns that this fifth season, triggered by the death of the deer he shot, is now waking up after thousands of years of sleep to rebalance the planet’s life. He also discovers that none of these stories are myths but a part of his personal history, as he is the long-lost heir of one of the four seasons.

To make amends for his crimes and finish his quest as a hero, Gökhan tries to save the last “Ulu” of the mountain. However, the consequences of his previous actions and the looming threat of climate change will be felt much sooner than he believes. 

The Mysian Olympos (Uludağ) the region’s highest peak, is a paradise where, according to legend, Solomon’s talismanic treasure on Earth is hidden. During the reign of the Roman Empire, monks who lived on the mountain believed it was a source of life and witnessed miraculous events.

Following the Ottoman conquest of Bursa, a city beneath the Olympos, these monks went into seclusion in the mountain monasteries and shared their experiences with the Muslim dervishes who came after them, introducing them to the ancient secrets of nature. Some dervishes, who claimed to have communicated with mysterious beings known as “Ulular,” settled permanently in the area and founded the village of Gökeren in the mountain’s belly. According to the legend, “Ulular” are enigmatic beings who are thought to be the mountain’s soul.

It is believed that Ulular’s sole goal is to protect Uludağ, the region’s source of life, which is why they communicate with those who need it the most: human beings. However, the greedy son of Adam, who was dissatisfied with the paradise he was given, went after the treasures beneath the earth, where they eventually met the Sinister one. Although it comes from the same realm as the “Ulular,” their divine foe, the Sinister, is a cunning power that has taken up residence in the mountain’s tungsten mines and has never seen the light of day. With the opening of the mines on the mountain, The Sinister was able to communicate with the locals and started to entice them to bring about the destruction of this area that had been protected for thousands of years.

Nowadays, Uludağ lost its mystical power as it has become the country’s most popular ski resort, and the “Ulular” has become an urban legend. The village of Gökeren, once known as the “Garden of Eden,” is in perpetual darkness, waiting for the “Lost Heroes” to return.

SEASON ONE: WINTER (10×45’)

SEASON TWO: SPRING, SUMMER AND FALL (10×45’)

SEASON THREE: THE FIFTH CLIMATE (8×45’)

 

“Holympos” is an original story that is built in such a way that the following content is inspired in various ways.

The forests of Twin Peaks, the haunted buildings of Riget, the mysterious mythology of Lost, the realism of The Blair Witch Project, the science fiction of Contact, and the uncanny strangeness of Taylan Brothers’ “Sır Dosyası.” They would be good examples to visualize the “Holympos” in your mind.

 

The story of “Holympos”, which mixes real and fictional places together, takes place in 3 regions.

ULUDAĞ
GÖKEREN
BURSA

Holympos (Ulular) combines local elements of its story with global insights from a ski resort and the surrounding metropolitan life. The series is planned to be an internationally exciting project, and if it gets the chance to be broadcast on Netflix, it is designed to form the platform’s first original universe, the “Lost Heroes Universe”.

Although “Holympos” combines a mysterious and suspenseful story that the “binge watcher” audience loves to follow, it is a cautionary tale that has severe problems with the way we live on our planet. Telling its story through human beings and their legends, the real heroes of this tragedy are the real owners of the earth; animals and nature.
