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.
What a have to say about this film, if you're not a Turkish, do not waste your time watching it. It is just historical revisionism propaganda disguised as a film. If you want some historical accuracy, watch "The Promise", you will be better served or read a book about the Armenian Genocide in WWI under the Ottoman Empire.
