A true love and success story from the 1990s Turkey, revolving around a jockey (Halis Karatas), a horse (Bold Pilot) and the daughter of the horse's owner who is at the same time the voluntary caretaker of the horse.

In 1950, amid-st the ravages of the Korean War, Sergeant Süleyman stumbles upon a a half-frozen little girl, with no parents and no help in sight. Frantic, scared and on the verge of death, this little girl captures the heart of Süleyman, who risks his own life to save her, smuggling her into his Army base and out of harms way. Not knowing her name and unable to communicate with her, Süleyman names her Ayla, in reminiscence of the moon on the fateful night during which they met. The two form an instantaneous and inseparable bond, and Ayla, almost effortlessly, brings an uncanny joy to the Turkish brigade in the grip of war. As the war comes to a close however, Süleyman's brigade is told that they will be returning home. Süleyman cannot bear abandoning Ayla, and does everything within his power to take her with him. After repeated failure, he is forced to give Ayla to an orphanage, but doesn't give up on the hope of one day reuniting with her. Will the two ever get back together?Written by
Towards the end of the movie, when Sergeant Süleyman leaves his home to go to mosque, he greets an old man who is reading his newspaper in front of a cafe on the street. That old man is the real life Süleyman who was 91 years old at the time. Unfortunately, he died within two months after the premiere, while the film was still in general release. See more »
Scene of North Korean Ambush; the American officer holding a Beretta sport model pistol ; it should be 45.cal 1911 Colt instead. See more »
This movie is based on true story of a Turkish Sergeant Suleyman Dilbirligi's who went to Korean war in 1950. He found a little girl who lost her all family in the war and Suleyman cared this little girl until he left from Korea. However, they could meet again after 60 years. Actually, this is the best Turkish movie that I have ever watched till now. It is really pretty hard to explain my emotions that I've felt when watching the movie. From the beginning to the end, the movie made me locked. I strongly recommend you to watch this incredible and excellent movie, believe me, you will never regret and I am exactly sure that you will feel the pure love and innocence.
