It’s the beginning of the summer.

In a village in the north of Turkey, Lale and her four sisters come home from school, innocently playing with boys.

The supposed debauchery of their games causes a scandal with unintended consequences.

The family home slowly turns into a prison, classes on housework and cooking replace school, and marriages begin to be arranged.

The five sisters, driven by the same desire for freedom, fight back against the limits imposed on them.
