This film is the story of the first man to fly. It was in the 17th Century during the reign of Murat IV, a period of ottoman history when there was much bloodshed that Hezarfen Ahmet Çelebi flew from Europe to Asia over the Bosporus on wings of his own making. Istanbul beneath My Wings, using the story of this flight as a vehicle, describes the conflict between individual freedom and authority, between those who desire to make progress towards civilization and those in positions of authority who resist all innovation and development. Hezarfen has managed to get his hands on Leonardo da Vinci´s drawings relating to human flight. In order to decode Leonardo´s coded instructions, Hezarfen takes the owner of manuscript, an Italian slave girl, into his home. Nothing can stand in front of the universality of love and knowledge.

Gülay - Aşk

 

Gülay - Love

 

Önce kuş olduk uçtuk semaya
sonra vurulduk düstük sevdaya

Yandik atesten korlar misali
öyle derindi vardik mihraba

Aski ilahi saydik cihanda
özden bulustuk fani mekanda

Ayrilsa yollar güller savrulsa
susmaz ki aşka aşik gönüller

Basically, it says one of the sultans were a gay/homosexual, but there is no proof about it.
