Sarmasik gülleri

Genre: Drama, Romance


With sloping masts and dipping prow

As who pursued with yell and blow

Still treads the shadow of his foe

And forward bends his head

This ship drove fast, loud roared the blast

And southward aye we fled.

Idiot! He didn't get

where the current was coming from...

Mehmet! Throw it!

Lower it! Lower it!

Welcome aboard.

Are we supposed to wait here all day?

I'm Cenk, seaman.

I'm Alper, seaman.

Chief, chief!

Go tell them to switch on their two-ways.

Can't they hear me?

I'm Kurd.

All of them.

How would you know?

Have you worked on all of them?

I know. All of them.

Beans and rice every Sunday.

Is that what you're saying?

No, just on Turkish ships.

It's a tradition.

But not on foreign ships.

They sometimes serve beans and rice...

Demolition of the shanties in Sulukule

has started. 17 arrests were made.

Well it is scresh, scresh.

- Scresh?

Yes Papa,

Popice popira popita popice...

This is your cabin.


Where's the skipper from?

You mean Beybaba?

- Yep.

He's from Cyprus.

This is your cabin.


Get ready and don't be late for dinner.

Get ready and don't be late for dinner.


Sit down. Dig in.

Enjoy it.

Sit here, Chief Engineer.

So, how are things?

She's worn out, but chugging along.

Sulzer engines and me are old friends.


I've worked there once.

Thanks, brother.

Enjoy your meal.

My friend Mustafa worked on that ship.

He left years before I came.

To a different ship, or to land?

- To a different ship.

And there was Duck-Foot Kaan.

What do you make of these new guys?

One of them showed up with a black eye.

The other one's a landlubber.

This is only his second time.

You can tell they're rookies.

All that's arrived on board

is some sawdust and oil.

Don't even go into that.

I'll call them tomorrow.

We'll just have to manage.

It'll last 4-5 days till we make port.

Then we can stock up there.

They haven't sent

any of the stuff I asked for.

Everyone's fed up, Reis.

We haven't been paid for 2 months.

It'd be the same on a different ship.

Nobody's getting paid these days.


What's the name of that guy

with the black eye?


- Cenk...

The other one's Alper, right?

- Yes, Alper.

Come here, sonny.

Yes, Reis.

Where were you working before?

I was on the Turhan Bey.

How many times have you sailed?

- This is my second time.

This is your second time.

Go finish your meal. We'll talk later

Okay, Reis.

Enjoy your meal.

- Thank you.

Let's hope for the best.

I know what he's like.

Let's take care of things right away.

You know the captain.

Have the boys clean everything, OK?

Okay. Good night.

Come in.

Just leave it, Nadir.

I need to talk to you about something.

What is it, Nadir?

Go on, tell me.

Beybaba, I need to be released.

They're tearing down our house.

My parents are out on the street.

Who's tearing it down?

The State.

Why would the State tear down

your house?

They are, Beybaba.

I saw it on the news.

Demolition already began in Sulukule.

Our house will be next.

I need to be with my family.

I want to disembark in Canakkale.

What are you saying, Nadir?

This isn't a game.

We already hired 2 replacements.

Are we supposed to wait for new recruits?


- We can't change our schedule.

Beybaba, I told you.

I have to get off.

What are you going to do?

Stand in front of the bulldozers?

The State won't leave anyone homeless.

But Beybaba...

- Don't your parents need money?

Right when they need money most,

you're quitting your job.

You think you'll find a new one?

I'll find one, Beybaba.

Nadir, son,

don't you need money?
