Synopsis by Augustine Chay
German-American director Sherry Hormann’s tragic drama was inspired by the honor killing of Hatun “Aynur” Sürücü in 2005. Almila Bagriacik plays Aynur, a young Turkish-Kurdish woman who fled an abusive arranged marriage to pursue a new life as a single mother in Berlin. Her conservative, Muslim family deemed her actions unacceptable – leading to her murder at the hands of her youngest brother.
