I LOVED HIM SO MUCH
A young woman, as a witness in Yassiada trial, gets interrogated about her relationship with Adnan Menderes, the Prime Minister of his time
A young woman, as a witness in Yassiada trial, gets interrogated about her relationship with Adnan Menderes, the Prime Minister of his time. The judge asks her if she knows that Adnan is married, if he killed her baby and if she is ashamed of being his mistress or not. The young woman answers: “I love him so much!” This project is about well-known but unspoken love between Adnan Menderes, the prime minister of his time, and his beloved mistress Ayhan Aydan. The story begins with the hardest years of Democrat Party. While news of martyrs from the Korean War spreads around the country, intense opposition from Republican People’s Party (RPP) also creates high tension on Adnan Menderes. On the other hand, his love for his children and unemotional but constructive support of his wife help him to stand. However, his meeting with Ayhan Aydan starts an inevitable and problematic love affair in such a period. Moreover, Ayhan, with her only child, passes through rough marriage process. Although her marriage is about to be over, her relationship with Adnan creates tension in both sides and Adnan’s wife Berrin gets affected the most.
