Storyline

A strong-willed young woman, who, frustrated by on-going injustice at home, leaves the U.S. after meeting Jude, an American doctor who runs a remote medical mission within the Ottoman Empire. A world both exotic and dangerous, and on the brink of what is about to become World War I. There, she finds her loyalty to Jude and the mission's founder tested when she falls in love with their perceived enemy, a Lieutenant in the Ottoman Imperial Army. Now, with invading army forces at their doorstep, and the world about to plunge into all-out war, she must make a decision if she wants to be what other people want her to be, or to be herself.

One Of The Best War Movie Ever...
9 May 2017 | by emrahhorasanSee all my reviews

I really do like war scenes.. It does not matter if the genre is sci-fiction or history. Bullets, gun fires or lasers, big bombs... Blood. This is it. The interesting thing about this movie is you do not see these kind of scenes but at he end you feel like you've watched a killer one !

I'm not an emotional guy and truly hate romance but the amount of pink scenes got harmonized with history & war so professionally that one can not be bored during the movie.

To sum... must be watched.
