They will not be tamed.
In a village in the north of Turkey, Lale and her four sisters innocently celebrate the end of the school year 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 five sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, fight back against the limits imposed upon them.
Nominated for Best Foreign Language Film Academy Award, and anchored by sensational performances and a moving soundtrack by Warren Ellis, MUSTANG is a gripping portrait of female empowerment.
