A strong-willed young woman, who, frustrated by ongoing injustice at home, leaves the United States 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 the first World War. 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.

Fake historic facts trying to create a fake Turkish distorted version of the Promis.
27 July 2017 | by See all my reviews

The whole film is based on fake facts and alternative facts. Only Turkish nationalists would believe this made up fake "historic" film. The whole film is based on lies and is a poor attempt of covering up attention paid to last years movie "The Promise".

Sad turks still try to deny the genocide by their criminal pashas. Erdoghan's favorite film this year, too bad they are totally lost and have no connection to reality.
