Summary

Three people meet under unlikely circumstances and change each other's lives in this Turkish drama from director Abdullah Oguz. When an unmarried teenage girl is believed by her family to have given up her virginity, she is ordered to be killed out of shame. But before her relative is able to complete the task, the two encounter a college professor in the midst of an existential crisis. With each of their futures held in the balance, the trio embarks on a journey together. ~ Matthew Tobey, Rovi
