This is a drama about the struggle of Kurdish journalists to produce their newspaper Özgür Gündem. Under severe repression and intimidation, getting out a newspaper is a deadly danger. The story centers around the Kurdish journalists in Diyarbakır, the largest Kurdish city in Turkey.
Özgür Gündem is under siege. After exposing human rights abuses in the city of Diyarba the journalists of Özgür Gündem become the target of increasingly ruthless government-sanctioned intimidation. Press tells the powerful story of the Özgür Gündem offices and Kurdish journalists in Diyarbakır and their struggle to get their stories out.
