Alina tells story of Melisa Eryilmaz, a double agent named Alina, and her fight to discover the truth about her family and her real identity. Alina was adopted by the Turkish secret service agent Firat Yilmaz at the age of 3 and was raised under the name Melisa Eryilmaz. Melisa learned Russian, Bulgarian, German, Arabic and English as a result of the trips she took as a kid with Firat Yilmaz and eventually started to work with intelligence agencies such as MI-6, CSR, CESIS, BND, SGDN and SAVAK. What she would discover on one assignment would shatter everything she knows about her life and would set her on a dangerous mission to discover the truth behind her real identity.

Did You Know?
Character of Alina was originally written for a male lead. However Seda Egridere persuaded the producers she was the right fit for the role. Upon being cast as the titular character, Egridere persuaded consulting director/producer Bobby Roth to shoot parts of the film in her home country and they rewrote the script from scratch to make it a stronger action flick with a female lead. In an interview with one of the top newspapers in Turkey, Hurriyet, Bobby Roth praised Egridere's acting performance and work discipline and noted that he accepted the project and agreed to shoot in Turkey only because he trusted Seda and her power both as an actress and a producer.
