American actress Angelina Jolie and international footballer Cristiano Ronaldo shot a new Turkish series that highlights the plight of Syrian refugees in Turkey, Turkish Daily Sabah reported on Thursday.
The series “Hayat Koprusu” – which translates to Bridge of Life in English - was shot in the southern province of Gaziantep and is planned to last for three seasons.
The show tells the story of a Syrian family who flee their war-torn country to seek refuge in turkey.
The director of the show said that the project was launched with the slogan “Either you stay there and die, or you come here and live,” and that Ronaldo and Jolie were among the big celebrities who wanted to contribute to the project.
