Title: Not as Nations
Length: 103 pages
Genre: Drama / Golden Fleece
Logline: When an ex-military Kurd loses his young sister in a shooting, he embarks on a journey to find her killer and avenge her death, only to find the answer that he never anticipated.

Not as Nations is based on true events and tells the story of a Kurd (Murat) determined to bring justice to his sister’s killer, whoever that may be. Throughout his journey Murat encounters one setback after another, until he finally realizes that ‘right’ is relative and in war, everyone loses. The script's strengths lie in its subtleties of character and story, and it is culturally relevant to today's political environment as it explores the hypocrisy of war fought for the sake of peace.

The idea that there is not always a clear distinction between right and wrong is a universal one, and so a wide variety of audiences would appreciate the situations that Murat gets into, as well as his realization that exacting revenge doesn’t bring about peace. In fact, the title ‘Not as Nations’ was taken (with permission) from the Clarence Jordan quote, ‘It is not enough to limit your love to your own nation, to your own group. You must respond with love even to those outside of it. . . . This concept enables people to live together not as nations, but as the human race.’

Ultimately, this script has significant potential (both financial and otherwise), especially on the film festival circuit.
