About ‘La pasión turca’
Olivia, a Spanish fine arts teacher with a brilliant career, wakes up from a coma in an Istanbul hospital after attempting suicide. There she answers the questions of an inspector who is investigating Olivia’s collaboration in an art smuggling network with Yaman, her Turkish lover.
The story of the protagonist reconstructs in two stages the overwhelming passion that she lived with Yaman and that made her abandon her life project in Spain. A story full of lights and shadows about which Olivia does not always tell the truth, which fuels the mystery that surrounds her stay in Turkey and her participation in the man’s dangerous businesses. To break out of jail and gain protection from the authorities, Olivia must return to Yaman’s side and inform the police of her movements. An act as brave as it is desperate: is Olivia acting to save herself or to save Yamam and her love story?
