Gitmek: My Marlon and Brando


Ayça is a Turkish actress and she lives in Istanbul. On a film set in the West of Turkey, she meets Hama Ali, a Kurdish actor. The two fall in love while shooting a film. After the shoot, Ayça returns to Istanbul and Hama has to go back to his home, Suleymaniye in northern Iraq. But Ayça can no longer bear the distance between them and decides to travel to northern Iraq. However, getting into a country at war turns out to be just as difficult as getting out.
