2 Girls

It is summer in Istanbul and the body of a young man is discovered in a local lake. The air is oppressive as Behiye prepares to enter one of Turkey's most prestigious universities. Angry, overweight, embarrassed by her parents and contemptuous of her Nazi older brother - Behiye longs for some salvation from her teenage despair. In the week before she starts university she is introduced to Handan - a beautiful, gentle girl who will change Behiye's life forever. Immediately drawn to one another, the two girls embark upon an intense, exclusive relationship even though they are from completely different backgrounds, with different dreams and ambitions. As their friendship spirals out of control, Behiye realises the impossibility of their being able to cross the cultural divide.
