Film information

Story: 1930s drama following the political and romantic tensions that unfold as various factions jostle for control amidst the crumbling Ottoman Empire. It is 1908 and Sultan Abdul Hamid (Fritz Kortner), the official ruler of Turkey and its empire, finds his authority increasingly under threat from the Young Turk party. When Abdul falls in love with beautiful Viennese opera singer Therese (Adrienne Ames), who is engaged to Young Turk Talak (John Stuart), the pair inevitably find their relationship under threat. With brutal police chief Kadar-Pasha (Nils Asther) not averse to using underhand means to defend the prevailing order and Abdul intent on marrying the woman he desires, the romance and ideals of Talak and Therese may struggle to thrive.
