Over the past 20 days, the movie has drawn more than 1 million people to 165 theaters in Turkey and 60 theaters abroad. Kirmizigul's movie has been watched by 970,000 people in Turkey and 150,000 in foreign countries, mostly in Europe.

Producers are now preparing new copies to send them to Arab countries.

"We will meet Arab countries' demands but the date of first release (in Arab countries) will be determined by producers," said Filiz Ocal, public relations officer of the production team.

The movie tells the story of two brothers who brought their father to Istanbul for medical care. But the father escapes from the hospital and begins to live in a rest home. One day, he offers his friends to travel to his village in Diyarbakir, a journey which would be a honeymoon for a couple who just got married at the rest home. Their adventure begins with this journey.
