This 2015 internationally co-produced film is directed by Turkish-French film director Deniz Ergüven.  Set in a remote Turkish village it depicts the lives of five young orphaned sisters and challenges they face growing up as girls in a conservative society.  In a Turkish village, the orphaned sisters (Günes Sensoy, Tugba Sunguroglu, Elit Iscan) live under strict rule while members of their family prepare their arranged marriages.  The event that triggers the family backlash against the five sisters at the beginning of the film is based on Ergüven’s personal life.
