Synopsis

“The latest collaboration between Çagla Zencirci and Guillaume Giovanetti offers a nicely shaded, satisfying tale of female empowerment with a striking central performance from Damla Sönmez. ” –Screen Daily

In this moving story of empowerment and acceptance, the free-spirited and beautiful Sibel lives with her father and sister in a secluded mountain village. Only able to communicate using an ancestral whistled language, she is an outsider in her own community. Determined to win approval, she sets out to hunt down a wolf haunting the neighboring forest. There, she crosses paths with a fugitive who changes her world.
