In a remote Turkish village five teenage sisters react to the growing constraints placed upon them by their guardians. Villagers gossip, marriages are arranged and the sisters’ voices remain unheard. Poignant examination of the place of young women in rural Turkish society, the strength of sisterly love and what it takes to rebel. Oscar nomination, 36 wins so far and more than 40 other nominations.
