They shot me in the jail, I did not die. I got sick and lost one of my lung and I did not die again. They have beaten me, my mouth was full of blood but I did not die. I lived... I lived just to see you again one last time. They told me that you went silent after I jailed. Nobody heard your voice. Will you talk with me now? Can I hear your voice again.

And, to tell the truth, HE still is. The filmmakers in Turkey are always claiming about reaching the thing, the unbelievable, the extreme thing that this movie made to the people. With no grand advertising, or big budget, that's just a miracle that movie has made. And to a miracle, points or comments do nothing but you wanted and I give:eternity out of 10 and just love, like the movie gives to you.
