The life of Vecihi Hürkuş, as the most important figure in Turkish aviation history, an engineer with endless inventions in his mind, and Turkey’s first aircraft designer and builder, is now in theaters for the first time... This life story, dedicated to the ambition for flying in 1912 when Vecihi was 26 years old, continues with the contemporary story of Mehmet and Selin who are in the pursuit of their dreams to design an aircraft by following in the footsteps of Vecihi. Narrating the heroic stories and struggles of Vecihi Hürkuş until the War of Independence with strong visual effects, the movie draws attention as being Turkey’s first motion picture with the longest duration of air combat scenes.
