Synopsis

At the peak of Ottoman power, in the sixteenth century, young boys are collected from all over the empire to serve in the army of the Sultan. One is Ozaner, taken from his family in Albania at the age of eight, never to return from Constantinople. When his father is notified of Ozaner's death in unexplained circumstances, he travels to the distant capital to find out what happened. Court intrigue, the color and bustle of daily life, and a father's slowly healing grief are the backdrop of this story of loss, mystery, and redemption.
