On the bus back to Istanbul, they’re showing some kind of Turkish TV drama. The hero, Ibrahim, is a Turkish soldier fighting in the mountains. He’s captured by the enemy who are distinguished by scarves looped round their necks. I guess they’re meant to be Kurdish fighters.
The leader roughs up Ibrahim and his mate pretty graphically – pistol-whipping them and hold a gun to their heads several times. Our hero endures all this with a beatific look on his face.
Back home, his mother dreams her son is fatally wounded. A moment later Ibrahim is shot at point blank range, just as his brave Turkish soldier friends arrive to rescue him.
It’s all a bit much for mid-morning viewing.
