Plot[ edit ] Set in Lebanon during the Ottoman Empire , Kamila, a widowed mother, works as the housekeeper for Mustafa, a foreign poet, painter and political activist being held under house arrest. Mustafa is guarded by the soldier Halim, who secretly pines for Kamila. Almitra has seagulls for her only friends; she even seems able to talk to them by making birdlike noises.
The Sergeant escorts Mustafa to the ship, and Mustafa spends the time conversing with Kamila, Almitra and Halim, as well as with the townspeople, who regard him a hero. Once they reach the ship, the army imprisons Mustafa in a fortress instead of allowing him to board.
Mustafa refuses, asserting that his writings are not seditious. Thus, the commanding officer sentences Mustafa to death by firing squad the next morning unless he disavows his writings.
That evening, Kamila, Almitra and Halim try to help Mustafa escape. Mustafa refuses to try to escape, giving his final animated poem, this time on death. His final wish is that his friends to return to the house and rescue all his paintings and writings before the army can destroy them. A large flock of seagulls surround him as he is being placed in position. Suddenly, they hear loud gunfire and see the flock of seagulls flee the fortress but Almitra insists that Mustafa is all right.
