Sancar is the son of a poor woodchopper, who has never left Muğla. Nare, on the other hand, is the daughter of an ambassador and a world citizen who grew up in Oslo, Tokyo, Cape Town, New Delhi and Ottawa. As two innocent children, their heights were smaller than their love. Growing up, Sancar learned about the world from Nare while Nare learned about her country.
Always longing for one another, they only saw each other two days a year but there were never two minutes they did not think of each other. Fighting for their love, they resisted dragons, talked against pharaohs and swung their swords against heathens.
But on the night they were going to unite, Nare disappeared and no one ever saw her again. Some said she fell into the sea and died, others said she ran away to Europe being the daughter of an ambassador. Someone even wrote a ballad… “the ambassador’s daughter became a motley bird and flew; my swashbuckler is painted red, bleeding all over.”
Now, the ambassador’s daughter who disappeared on one wedding night reappeared on another wedding night. As you know, swashbucklers only kneel down while dancing the zeibek, Sancar Swashbuckler put his knee on the ground and came to a stop in front of the ambassador’s daughter. After this, was neither an epic nor a lie, only a war.
