The three sis­ters Reyhan (20), Nurhan (16) and Havva (13) all live with their father in a remo­te vil­la­ge in cen­tral Anatolia. One after the other they were sent away to town to work as house­maids, but each of them has now retur­ned. The last of the sis­ters to do so is Nurhan. She beat the local doctor’s son becau­se he wet his bed every night. When Reyhan retur­ned home pregnant, her father hasti­ly mar­ried her off to the she­p­herd, Veysel. One day, the ine­bria­ted Veysel rises up against the vil­la­ge elder; his actions have dra­ma­tic con­se­quen­ces. Even if the dream of a bet­ter future does not come true for any of the­se young women and they always seem to be get­ting into argu­ments with each other, they none­thel­ess stead­fast­ly stick tog­e­ther. While they wait for the snow-cover­ed roads to beco­me pas­sa­ble again, father and daugh­ters pass the time with stories.
Emin Alper, who grew up in the Anatolian moun­ta­ins hims­elf, unfolds his fairy tale in haun­ting images. He por­trays a socie­ty in which neither women nor men have a chan­ce to break their pre­de­ter­mi­ned cycle, and yet he still lea­ves room for hope
