Trial by Fire

Synopsis: A prosecutor and her police officer boyfriend clash over a gruesome murder case.


Does the media interest not prove

how right we are on our case?

Unfortunately, my client is under

doctor control due to the stress.

I want to draw attention to this.

The media's attention too.

The matter is important. The

defendant has a health problem.

He couldn't get an erection and enter

sexual intercourse with his wife...

...until the day he left home.

My client is still a virgin. This has

been proven by factual evidence.

Your honor, they are insulting

my manhood! Shame on you!

This girl... Yes, she's still a girl.

She divorced from her first husband

with the same reason.

Was he impotent too?

Your honor!

Order please!

Write down.

It is the order of this court...

...that the ex husband of the

plaintiff Nazan Korkmaz...

...Cavit Durak is listened to as


...and the case...

...postponed to 8.10.1999...

...10 o'clock.

Insulting his manhood? Bandit.

You should ask me.

Quiet mom or a fight will break out.

Let's remain calm.

The media wants to provoke a fight.

-Did you hear?

-I did.

Nazan, try not to talk much.

They're coming.

God damn them. They wasted

my girl. She couldn't live her youth.

Mrs. Nazan, a few questions?

Sure but short ones. You see

that she's pretty stressed out.

-Mrs. Nazan, will you perform?

-Ask my lawyer.

Maybe. There are proposals but

right now we're not considering.

Did you receive an offer

for TV serials?

There are many offers,

we're evaluating them.

Mrs. Nazan must first read the

scenarios and like them.

My daughter deserves everything.

I raised her like a flower but...

-...she has bad luck.

-Mom, cut it.

Are you thinking of

a third marriage?

Why shouldn't she?

She's still young.

Where's a suitable husband for her?

There's a shortage of men!

Thank you very much. We're gonna

have a press conference.

That mother of her..

I'm going to shoot her.

She screwed us. I'm going to

shoot both of them. Right here.

Don't be a child.

Their lawyer is guiding them.

That cunning bastard.

I'm going to shoot him too.

You know what bothers me most?

Cavit will hear these and

get overwhelmed with joy.

You get what you deserve.

Selami got divorced too.

Yet he's still pompous.

Look at that face.

You should have been man

and done your duty.

-Don't talk like that!

-To hell with your fish.

Did I say something wrong?

Shut up! What's it to you

with our manhood?

She left them.

Hope you'll recover.

What's that supposed to mean?

Am I ill?

They're here.

Can we ask some questions?

Dear friends, that's enough

for today. As you see...

...Mrs. Nazan is very tired.

She needs some rest.

Well, if it's a short one, why not?

Sevinc, who's that?

Her lawyer.

That's a handsome man.

They look very close.

Maybe she's done it with him.

Could be mom.

She's about to fall in him.

The TV people are here to.

They are famous now.

We'll always have close

contact with the press. Thanks.

Is it over Necla?

No way.

This has taken too long. The judge

decided to listen to Cavit...

...her ex husband.

Why don't you go and

tell everything?

Come in Mr. Rafet,

I'm sorry for the mess.

-Can I offer you a coffee?

-Yes I'd like to.

Soon you'll have everything.

Nazan will live in villas.

I hope so.

Idiot. Some get divorced from

their second husband.

You couldn't find even one.

Take this.

This thing has really worn you up.

Hope you'll get over with it soon.

-They are b*tches.

-Shut up.

Am I wrong?

We're full man.

Forget about being a man Enver!

Dilber Basak said ''I'm married for

Hey, old fart!

Are you joking?

What joke?

I'm just reading the paper.

I wanted to write romance, but the domestically macabre always got in the way."She has won several awards, including the Crime Writers' Association Duncan Lawrie Dagger for Blood From Stone in 2008 and the Silver Dagger for Deep Sleep. In addition, her novel, Safer than Houses was nominated for the Duncan Lawrie Dagger in 2006. She also writes psychological thrillers under the name of Frances Hegarty, among them, The Playroom, Half Light and Let's Dance, which was published in 1995.Her novels have been translated into 14 languages. Several have been adapted for television. Fyfield's Helen West series has twice been adapted for television.
