    • Synopsis
    • “Sivas” features the story of an eleven year old boy, Aslan, and a noble weathered fighting dog, Sivas. A strong relationship is developed when Aslan finds Sivas who has been badly beaten after a fight.
      Meanwhile, Aslan loses the leading role of the Prince in his school play of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarves” to Osman, his rival-in-love and son of the village head. While Osman gets ahead in the race to win the hand of The Princess of the village, Ayşe, Aslan tries to impress her with his new-found friend. And Sivas, having found a new lease on life, wins one fight after another, strengthening Aslan’s hand against Osman. As Sivas’ success on the battle ground attracts more attention from the village head, Aslan finds himself in an unexpected crash-course into adulthood, leaving the Princess behind.
