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.
This film is a joke. Some Turks financed this film as a response to 'the Promise', recent film about Armenian Genocide and rescue at Musa Dagh. Interestingly, story takes place in Van, one place where Armenians showed some measly resistance to Turkish aggression, and where Russians had brief military success. That was enough for Turks who made this thing to depict extermination of 1.5 MILLION! Armenians as a conflict between two sides.
The reason why this film has such a high rating is because it was ten-voted by denialist Turks and their Muslim brothers from elsewhere. That's the same reason why 'the Promise' sits at 6.0, although lot more filmmaking skill and effort went into that movie.
If you're just a regular moviegoer and you liked this film, you should be aware you've consumed an ill-intentioned propaganda piece. A romance to hide uncountable mass graves.
Josh Hartnett how do you sleep at night? Are you really that dumb that you didn't have an idea what have you contributed to? Or you just snatched the dough and ran.
The purpose of Hartnett in this film was to make Turks warm around their hearts when pretty American girl choose one of theirs instead of an American pretty boy.
Embarrassment and humiliation for everyone involved.
