Description: When 17-year-old Meryem is found disheveled and unconscious by the side of a lake in the countryside, her family believes the worst -- that her chastity has been lost. They turn to the ancient principle of "tore," a strict moral code that condemns Meryem to death. The duty of upholding the family's honor falls upon a distant cousin, Cemal, who has just completed a brutal tour in the military. Together they embark on a surprising journey across traditional and modern-day Turkey.
