Write-Up:
Early summer. In a village in northern Turkey, Lale and her four sisters are walking home from school, playing innocently with some boys. When a neighbour sees them, the immorality of their play sets off a scandal that has unexpected consequences. The family home is progressively transformed into a prison; instruction in homemaking replaces school and marriages start being arranged. The five sisters who share a common passion for freedom, find ways of getting around the constraints imposed on them.
