Storyline

Pilot Captain Salih Ekrem is a young air officer and one of the first Ottoman pilots. He lost his wife during the birth of his little daughter, Gülmelek. In February 1915 with the first assaults of the British fleet, Salih Ekrem entrusts Gülmelek to her grandmother's care and leaves Istanbul to go to Gallipoli, flying on "one of the first planes". One day, while engaged in an air reconnaissance mission, Salih rushes to the aid of a group of Turkish medical personnel, among which is a young nurse by the name of Nihal, when they are attacked by two English planes. Although heavily injured during the skirmish, he manages to save a young boy named Fuat with the help of Nurse Nihal. An orphan, Fuat takes shelter under the wing of Nurse Nihal, Captain Dr. Ragip, Nurse Erika and the captain of the Nusrat, Captain Hakki. Seeing their own children reflected in the "Little Veteran" Fuat, everyone is doing their best to protect him. In the heat of the most violent and terrifying days of the war,...

A breath of fresh air.
21 April 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Son Mektup is a new and different movie that makes everything seem more exciting, just like the water diviner, it concentrates on the individual struggles and sacrifices made by the people of Turkey. But be warned this move doesn't have the great leader Atatürk in it, therefore it could offend some narrow minded individuals. It's just another view, to the war with no hidden agenda... that's all. I enjoyed it and loved it good work to the produced and cast. Son Mektup also tries its best not to take a vindictive stance about the enemy powers of the period. A war is a war, and even the character of a Turkish general comments on the deceased English soldiers on a warship that has just been bombed, This is a huge step for Turkish filmmakers endeavoring to produce films leaning on militarism.
