Summary: This is a story of the great Turkish poet Nâzim Hikmet, the poet of struggle and combat, the poet of passion and love. Having adopted communism as his life philosophy, he reflects his thinking in his art, and is continuously chased by the police as a result. Every move he makes, every word he writes or says is under the close scrutiny of the state. During World War II, the poet Nâzim Hikmet is arrested once more because of his communist links. This time the military court sentences him to 28 years in jail. In the course of his long imprisonment, he transforms the prison into a school and workshop, encouraging his fellow inmates to use their time productively. Throughout these dark years he manages to sustain his courage and passion by creating immortal works, imagining a world with freedom of thought.
