It is the beginning of summer in a Northern Turkish village. Lale and her four sisters innocently play with schoolboys on their way back from school. Their game, an act of transgression according to neighbors, ignites a scandal with unexpected consequences. From that moment forward their lives will change forever. The five sisters, sparked with a desire for freedom, grapple with the rules and impositions of their family. Director Deniz Gamze Ergüven lyrically elucidates the situation for young women in contemporary Turkey in France’s 2016 nominee for Best Foreign Language Oscar.
