Ayla is a 2017 Turkish movie; tells the story of a Turkish sergeant and a Korean little girl. It is based on a true story happened during the Korean War.
It’s about humanity and pure love. One night, when the moon was full, the sergeant found a little girl, terrified, shaking, not just of the freezing cold but also of the disaster, the inhumane massacre surrounded her fragile little frame.
A stranger, with a different tongue and a kind heart, became the girl’s papa. He saved her, cared about her, and never abandoned her. And she understood him, trusted him, and even loved him as her real papa.
But when the mission ended, the sergeant had to go back to his country, and by law, the little girl could not leave with him.
Did she forget her foreign papa? Did he forget the daughter of war? Never.
Fate brought them back together after sixty years.
It reminded me of I’m David movie by Paul Feig; wonderful stories with beautiful messages.
It’s available on Youtube, but with no English subtitles.
Herewith snaps of the movie, hope you will enjoy it.
Wishing you all the best,
