Country or family?
Cevdet is a lieutenant towards the end of the
Balkan war. He is a brave soldier for his country, a loving father to his
children, a good son to his mother and a devoted husband to his wife Azize.
To him, “your life or your country?” comes as an
easy question. Yet, his test will be “Your country or your family?” Azize, on
the other hand, will be tested on her love for her country as opposed to her
love for her husband.

love so enchanted, passionate and unforgettable; trying to stay alive in the
shadows of the war.
Written by Necati Şahin and Nuran Evren Şit,
the series will start shooting in August.
