Muro: Damn the Humanist Inside (Turkish: Muro: Nalet Olsun İçimdeki İnsan Sevgisine) is a 2008 Turkish comedy film, directed by Zübeyr Şaşmaz, starring Mustafa Üstündağ and Şefik Onatoğlu as two revolutionaries recently released from prison, who stumble across a illegal organization run by a former friend. The film, which went on general release across Turkey on December 5, 2008 (2008-12-05), is the third highest-grossing Turkish film of 2008. It is a spin-off from the Valley of the Wolves media franchise, based on the Turkish television series of the same name using characters from the sequel series Valley of the Wolves: Ambush.[1]



Muro (Mustafa Üstündağ) and Çeto (Şefik Onatoğlu), just released from prison, decide to return to their hometown to start a grassroots revolution. The first phase of their plan is to find two girls, get married and start their own families to become good exemplars of revolutionists. However, a surprise awaits them in their hometown. The village head has married Muro and Çeto to two Russian women while they were in prison. The two now have to return to İstanbul to find the women to whom they were married and get divorces if they want to realize their ideals. But on their return to the big city, they stumble across a massive illegal organization that they will never be able to decipher.
