Synopsis:

The film is set in a remote Turkish village and depicts the life of Lale and her four sisters. They are walking home from school, playing innocently with some boys. The immortality 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. The protagonists of this movie are not victims, since being a woman in man’s world requires special type of courage.
