In a village in the north of Turkey, Lale (Günes Sensoy) and her 4 sisters innocently celebrate the end of the schoolyear at the beach with some boys.  
The supposed debauchery of their actions causes their home to progressively transform into a prison; classes on housework and cooking replace school, and marriages are arranged.  
The 5 sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, fight back against the limits imposed upon them. 
Nominated for Best International Film at the Academy Awards and anchored by sensational performances and a moving soundtrack by Warren Ellis, Mustang is a gripping portrait of female empowerment. 
Ergüven has delivered a debut for the ages, her film a chilling, emotionally shattering marvel I'm unlikely to forget anytime soon’ –
