Mutlu Kaya is just 19 when her dream of making it as a singer comes close enough to touch: she is about to enter the finale of the TV show ‘Turkey’s Got Talent’. But then, a man guns down the Kurdish teenager. His motive: Mutlu rejected his marriage proposal. She barely survives and is left with a bullet in her head. After weeks in a coma, Mutlu takes her first tentative steps back into life, supported by her beloved sister Dilek. But five years later, a phone call hits Mutlu harder than anything that has come before: her sister Dilek has been murdered by her fiancé. Mutlu is now fighting not just for her own recovery but for justice for her sister. She is also fighting against the normalisation of violence against women. Ultimately, Mutlu wants to sing again, for Dilek.
