Description: On July 4, 2003, the ally American squads arrive at the unofficial, semi-confidential headquarters of 11 members of the special Turkish forces deployed in Northern Iraq. The Turkish squad assumes it to be a usual visit of their allies. But this time, it is different. With the changing conjuncture, the USA aims to be the only power "to have the last word" in the region. To them, no Turks are needed in the region. That day, 11 soldiers are deported with sacks on their heads and with their military pride disregarded before the eyes of the public. Suleyman Aslan is one of those 11 people. Unable to stomach being scorned, First Lieutenant Suleyman commits suicide, leaving a letter behind. The letter is written to Polat Alemdar, a privately and well trained Turkish intelligencer. He took part in countless operations both within the country and abroad for an intelligence agency working for the state. Always living for the sake of duty, Polat Alemdar cannot be indifferent to the will of his friend who committed suicide for the pride of his duty. He is now in Northern Iraq with his men, even to die if necessary.
