Storyline

During the Sarikamis Battle, the Ottoman army runs out of ammunition and appeals to the people of Van for help, who happen to have supplies. However, the First World War is on and all men are fighting at four corners of the empire and therefore can not respond to to the appeal. The young children of Van want to do something. When the Principal of a school, who has lost a son in the war, suggests that the ammunition be transported to Sarikamis, 120 young boys aged 12 to 17 volunteer and take to the road. The movie tells the true story of the 120 boys and their sisters and mothers left behind, who wait for their return. The movie opens with a scene where and Armenian doctor goes to the house of a Turk whose son is sick, as he has done many times before. One of the boys does not like an Armenian doctor providing medical service to Turks, who, he believes are out to destroy the Turks. At the same time, the Armenian members of the Hunchaks in Van, who gather at a church and vow to join the... Written by ahmetkozan

Every Turk should see for what great heroes there are in Turkish history
27 December 2008 | by yldzyldzSee all my reviews

The movies impressively shows what is sacrifice in Turkish history. Since I have cried during the movie and still crying I can not write no more than this. But some Turks should learn some lessons from the movie. Independence came with its price and this should be respected. We should honor what these 120 kids and other Heroes of the Independence war had done. If those kids would have seen what they had fought for, they should be proud but not regret. Also I think the movie included some objective comments on both sides of the war. I agree that actors could have devoted themselves more into their roles but still the movies reached its goal.
