> Four years after the bloody Battle of Gallipoli, Australian farmer Joshua Connor risks his own life to search for his three beloved sons, who never returned home from the war. Arriving in Istanbul, he is thrust into a vastly different world, where he encounters others who have suffered their own terrible losses in the conflict: Ayshe, a strikingly beautiful but guarded hotelier raising a child alone; her young, spirited son, Orhan, who finds a friend in Connor; and Major Hasan, a Turkish officer who fought against Connor’s boys and who now may be this desperately determined father’s only hope. With seemingly insurmountable obstacles in his path, Connor embarks on an emotionally charged and dangerous trek across the battle-scarred Turkish landscape to find the truth and, perhaps, his own peace.

> Vera Brittain – irrepressible, intelligent and free-minded – overcomes the prejudices of her family and hometown to win a scholarship to Oxford. With everything to live for, she falls in love with her brother’s close friend Roland Leighton as they go to University to pursue their literary dreams. But the First World War is looming, and as the boys leave for the front, Vera realizes she cannot sit idly by as her peers fight for their country, so she volunteers as a nurse. She works tirelessly, experiencing all the griefs of war, as one by one those closest to her are killed and the pillars of her world shattered. But, an indefatigable spirit, Vera endures and returns to Oxford, irrevocably changed, yet determined to find a new purpose, which spurs her towards a powerful act of remembrance.

> When Gary "Eggsy" Unwin’s father sacrifices his life in the line of duty during a classified military exercise, his family is given an unconventional medal – and a phone number they may use only once, should they need a favor of any kind. Seventeen years later, Eggsy is an unemployed school dropout living in his mother’s flat. After he is arrested for joyriding, Eggsy uses the medal to secure his release from jail, and finds himself rescued by Harry Hart, an impeccably suave spy who owes Eggsy’s father his life. Dismayed to learn of the path Eggsy has taken, Harry offers him the opportunity to turn his life around by trying out for a position with Harry’s employers: Kingsman, a top-secret independent intelligence organization. Meanwhile, a tech billionaire named Richmond Valentine has devised a scheme that will have devastating consequences for everyone. Based on the comic book series "The Secret Service," written by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons.
