Lale (Günes Sensoy) and her sisters Nur (Doga Zeynep Doguslu), Selma (Tugba Sunguroglu), Ece (Elit Iscan) and Sonay (Ilayda Akdogan) have a pretty good childhood. But then one day after school their grandmother (Nihal G. Koldas), who is raising them, greets them with accusations and beatings. The neighbors complained about them, they were behaving improperly and flirted with boys. All of a sudden, their childhood is over. The girls are locked away at home, their education reduced to learning how to be a good wife and all of them are to be married off as soon as possible.
Mustang is a beautiful, touching film that deals with many important issues in a thoughtful manner that doesn’t fail to hit home.
