MUTLULUK – HAPPINESS

In a remote village in east Anatolia a 17-year-old unconscious girl is found. She has lost her virginity and her family locks her up in a cabin. Her stepmother throws a rope at her and says: „You know what you have to to.“ They confide her to her cousin Cemal, an ex-soldier, and put them in a train to Istanbul. The girl is not supposed to ever arrive there. But things take a different turn.
