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 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
Iskenderun, where the turkish part of the story begins, is a cosmopolite southern industrial city of Turkey. The natal city of Suleyman, the main character is Maras, it's most likely a rural city at the southeast of Turkey. So, it gives in fact some kind of a sociological depth to the turkish characters of the story. See more »

This movie was coming with it's own unique aura. We had knew that, the movie will be good from it's trailers, TV advertisements and etc. I'm proud that, this movie is our Oscar nominee. Also I'm very thankful to those whom worked for this movie, to bring us a masterpiece. The movie is so emotional that me, I consider myself as a non-emotional person, even I wasn't able to hold myself to not to cry. Being based on a true story makes it even better on my opinion. You can hold yourself to not to cry on the whole movie but just wait for the credits. When you watch the movie you'll understand what I'm talking about right now. Again, thanks to everyone who involved in this piece of art and show us real facts lived on battle zones. "MUST WATCH IN THEATHERS"
