VOYAGE BEYOND THREE SEAS. Focus on Turkey

Breath is the story of 40 soldiers under the command of a captain who are responsible for the protection of a military guard post located in Karabal hill very close to the Iraqi South East border of Turkey. Throught individual and common stories of the soldiers, the movie allows us to witness the military and human aspects of Guneydogu issue, one of the most important elements of Turkish Republic agenda, in a quite objective and unprejudiced manner.
