Dear Brother,

on July 4th, 2003...

... in Suleymaniye North-lraq

as l was on duty...

for the security of the region

with ten of my soldiers,

the American troops,

with whom we drank

tea and fought together,

have ambushed

our quarters

and pointed their

guns at us.

Sir, we're receiving insistent

orders not to fight.

Give it to me.

Sir, it's me.

We are 11 people.

We have a machine

gun on the roof.

We have the firepower

to hit half the

They aren't intended to

make a search, sir.

The guys we served tea

are pointing guns at us.

lt is not against us, but

against the Turkish nation.

With my 10 soldiers,

l'm waiting for your

orders to die, sir!

Sir, l said l'm waiting for

your orders to die, sir!

Put your gun

down soldier.


Son, this is an order,

put your gun down!

Search whatever you want,

and get out of here!

This is the smoking room.

We smoke here.

What the?

Major, it's not safe for

our allies outside.

You asked for permission to

search the building only.

We will not go out.

Kill us if you like.

Don't make any mistakes

or else we'll kill you.

My men will take you to

headquarters for questioning.

You mean ''interrogation.''

About what?

Well, you'll see.

That's why it's

called questioning.

But while you're here why don't

you tell me where the C4 is?

We are soldiers.

We are neither detainees

nor prisoners.

Your men are not

wearing uniforms.

So it's very difficult

for us to decide

whether you're soldiers

or terrorists.

We cannot know this

without questioning you.

You're not

wearing a uniform.

You don't have a stripe.

You have no authority.

- You're not even a soldier!

- l used to be one.

Arrest them!

You have no

right to do this.

We're soldiers, don't

destroy our dignity.

Major, these men are soldiers

and they're very proud.

- Try not to let their

faces be seen. - Yes sir.

Turkish headquarters

have been raided.

- Who's done it?

- Americans.

Move it!

Move it!

Move it faster!

Dear Brother...

Everyday in lraq we

asked ourselves,

what are we

doing here?

Than we noticed

that everyone,

who had the power

over this region,

has oppressed the

people of this land.

Except our ancestors.

On that specific day,

we have not been able

to prove ourselves

worthy of our ancestors.

We couldn't

die for justice,

for our fight

against tyranny,

nor for our honor.

This is just what l

ask of you now.

lronic, isn' it?

Your brother Suleyman.

Long live the homeland.



- Where are we, Abdulhey?

- We're there.

Where is it? l cannot

see the red carpet.

You'll soon see the shining

red, yellow and green.

Traffic lights, Memati.

Shaving is masculine.

And a beard is feminine.

No matter how

hard the beard is,

the brush takes

all hardness away.

First, you will nicely

soften the beard.

Soften it...

Soften it...

Soften it...

- Come on in Ali.

- What're you doing?

- Dad.

- Where's your mother? Go!

There's a checkpoint


Are they policemen

or soldiers?

Police in the city,

soldiers in the mountain,

it's the same.

You remain captive

until you tame your ego.


Leyla, my daughter...

Don't ever remove

this until you're free.


You too.

Papers are okay,

everything's okay.

Are you Kurdish?


Get off, we'll

do a search.

He says we should

get off, boss.

Let's give him

something and go.

We will get off then.

Stand next to the car.

Look inside

the car too.

l don't like

these guys.

Why are you

causing trouble?

Let them do their

job, Abdulhey!

What's your name?

lt's in the passport.
