My name is Hope Cassidy.

Sometimes all you have

is your name. Hope.

Attention, attention!

Suspect Kelly Roos is heading

for the Grand Bazaar.

Cover all the exits!


My parents planned

on having three girls:

Hope, Faith and Charity.

A plane crash prevented

there being any Faith or Charity...

...leaving only Hope.

Get out of the way!

My dad used to say to me:

"In times of trouble, you only

have to remember who you are.

Because no matter how bad things

will get, there's always hope. "

Get out of the way!

Get out of the way!

My father was an eternal optimist.

That's what made him think his plane

wouldn't go down in that thunderstorm.

He was wrong.

I'm not Kelly Roos.



My name is Hope Cassidy.

Where am I?

In Capa Hospital. Istanbul.

Feel like talking, Kelly?

My name's Hope.

Put this on.

Not my color.

Can I see what else you have?

Wait a minute.

What are you doing?

Where...? No. No! No!

You can't just leave.

What are you doing? No. No! No!

Where are you taking me?

Where am I going? No!

Where are you taking me?

Where am I going? No!

Where are you taking me?

Who's watching me?

Dr. Kavak.

Where am I?

Jail. In Istanbul.


But you're not a doctor, are you?

You're a shrink.

Here to see if I'm fit to stand trial?

- I'm Dr. Kavak.

- And I'm Hope Cassidy.

That is why we are here.

To see exactly who you are.

I know who I am.

- What...? Do you think I'm crazy?

- No.

- Delusional?

- Yes.

You need to tell me how

this happened.

Oh, you fixed it.

- You're a genius.

- No.

It is my job.

I just returned it to normal.

- I'm really tired of normal, James.

- Hope, we've been over this.

- We were gonna live together anyway.

- I have my studies.

You can research dinosaurs anywhere.

A little thing called the Internet.

- I've pulled up some websites for you.

- I'm settled here.

- Do you want me to go alone?

- Better still...

...not at all.

Can you...? Can you put this down

for a second?

Someone has actually requested me.

Actually wants me.

Besides, we need a change.

L... I need a change.

- I need some adventure in my life.

- Order the steak tartare.

Mad cow is on the rise.

- Have you decided?

- I've decided what I want.

How about you, James?

Well, she's waiting.

- So am I.

- I'll come back.


I love you.

But come on, Istanbul?

It's the other end of the world.

- It's not safe, it's full of terrorists...

- No, no, no.

I've checked.

I talked to the State Department.

There's probably more terrorists

in your vertebrate class...

...than there is in Turkey.

I don't have a ticket.

Yeah, you do.

I got them to give me two tickets.

First-class. Look, I've never

done anything first-class in my life.

This is a major corporation.

Suzer International

has offices all over the world.

You've got a job there.

What is the point of me going?

I'd be there.

You know what,

I'm on that plane tomorrow, okay?

Here's your ticket. I know

what it means if you're not there.

This is crazy. Come on.

Did you think about this?

Do you know what you're getting into?

For once in my life, yeah, I do.

Hope. Hope.

- Hello.

- What?

- Hi.

- Hi.

- Get it all the way up.

- Okay.

- Are you in here?

- Yes.

- We're having fun...

- We're having fun.

- ... making little videos for ourselves.

- Bye.

Ladies and gentlemen...

...the final boarding call

for flight 101 to Istanbul.

I don't understand how they do it.

- What's that?

- Internet on these planes.

Well, it's very technical.

It's what you would call magic.

Good explanation.

The only thing that makes any sense.

Roxelena. Pretty name.

Is it your first time to Istanbul?

- Coming for a job.

- You'll love it. Many places to see.

You must go to Ortaky.

To the cafs there.

I'm always there

when I'm not here.

- Ortaky.

- Yes.

Thanks. You know what?

I'll give it a try.


I'm Hope.

Just plain Hope.

- Not a name I would've chosen.

- You don't like it?

As a kid, I always wanted to be Diana.

Like the Greek goddess.

- Goddess of the moon.

- Yeah.

Diana. All right.

Look, since this is your first time,

you could use this.

- No, I'm sorry, I can't take this.

- You must.

Turkish hospitality.

This is an evil-eye bracelet.

Turkish people believe that it protects

you from evil eye or bad luck.

You see, nothing is ever

as it seems in Istanbul.

Thank you.

You sure you don't want something?


To celebrate the new job?

- Why not?

- Okay.

- Here you go. Enjoy.

- Thanks.

You know, this could happen to you.

To anyone. Do you have

credit cards, driver's license?

- Of course.

- Okay, well, I guarantee you...

...that someone has used your identity

and you don't even know it.

But how can they steal who you are?

When there's not much to steal.

Thanks. Next, please.

- Thanks, ma'am.

- Thanks.

- Wait, this says "tourist. "

- What it is.

No, I have a work visa,

I'm moving here.

No work visa.

Your passport expires too soon.

- Next one, please.

- No, no, wait a minute.

The Turkish consulate said...

Go to American consulate, get

new passport. Next, please! Please.

Suzer International.

Yes, my name's Hope Cassidy,

I'm trying to reach Ali Abay.

- Okay.

- He hired me.

You're at the airport now?

I just arrived from America...

...and someone

was supposed to meet me here.

There should be a driver.

No, no. No one's here,
