Bitter Lands

Inter Medya
45 min

Yilmaz; a man who has no qualms about dying or even killing for the woman he loves passionately.

Zuleyha; a woman who gives up her hopes, dreams, and even herself in order to save the man she loves.

Hunkar; a mother who has devoted her life to protecting her son’s dominance at any cost over the fertile lands her family has owned for centuries.

Demir; a modern day landowner, the lord of lords, who wants to desperately possess a woman he is obsessively in love with- a woman who won't love him back.

On one hand are those who will do anything and everything to get what they want. And on the other are kind people with warm hearts who believe in the power of love.

Bitter Lands is the story of a legendary love that begins in Istanbul during the 1970s and continues in the fertile lands of Cukurova in southern Turkey through the trials of evil, ambition, and tyranny.

Bitter Lands asks whether love is eternal against the facts of life and tests the resistance of love and goodness amid a series of turbulent events. On these lands that have been molded with legendary tales of bravery and epic love over the centuries, at a period when mechanization in agriculture is beginning to show its effects, where does the goodness of love begin and where does evil end?

Yilmaz, who commits murder in order to protect Zuleyha from the cruelty of her own family, and Zuleyha who would rather die than give up on Yilmaz who became a murderer for the sake of his beloved, embark on a grueling escape journey.. Fate brings these passionate lovers to Adana, in the south where they will end up on the vast and fruitful lands of the modern and powerful landowner Demir who studied abroad, and his domineering mother Hunkar. A simple lie the runaway lovers say in order not to be separated from each other on these lands while looking for a way out, will turn their lives upside down and destroy any hopes of salvation they had, leaving them in the midst of utter turmoil.

Will Hunkar’s heart beat for these two victims of fate like it beats for her beloved son, the underprivileged under her patronage and all those living on her land in her care, or will she continue to keep them in the palm of her hand?

How long will a modern day lord, accustomed to getting everything he wants, continue to love a woman who only allows him in physically but never into her heart?

Will Yilmaz and Zuleyha's legendary love overcome all obstacles?

Bitter Lands asks all the essential questions about love and possession.
