Storyline

This epic story is based on true events that has been in progress for more than 20 years in which a number of young people in love of peace and humanity leave their countries to teach, help and live in countries they have never heard of before. This is the story of people who live for their ideals and other people before themselves, and who leave their families, loves, friends, countries behind. They set on this path just with the inspiration of the words which said "A couple of eyes are waiting for you here, but thousands of eyes are waiting in faraway lands." They had sacrifice and kindness in their bags, love in their hearts and a smiling Selam (greetings) in their tongues. This is indeed just three examples of the unbelievable real stories experienced by the devoted teachers all around the world. Written by Akif Okumus

A good first attempt
12 September 2013 | by deliveronSee all my reviews

This movie is about the volunteers who moved to different parts of the world to invest in education. People inspired by Mr. Gulen went to abroad since early 90s to create opportunities for the poor countries. Mr. Gulen is known as Ghandi of Turkey or MLK of Turkey because of his ideas about education, human rights, and dialog between people of different religions/cultures. This movie tries to picture the story of these volunteers.

As far as I know, this is the first movie telling their story, and it is a good attempt. I think, there are a lot to tell about how people survived in different countries when they wanted to build schools, and adapt to the culture. The movie pictures it in three different continents and countries namely, Afghanistan, Senegal, and Bosnia.
