Storyline

The prison of Diyarbakir, the setting of the story, is like the symbol of the torture experienced in the prisons in Turkey after the coup d'etat of 1980. However, in this story, I did not choose to tell the things that took place in the prison, or the political prisoners or the torture, or the political fight. Instead, I turned my camera to the little stories of the "silent" women outside the prison, who could not speak another language than Kurdish, which was forbidden in the prisons of that era. Written by L. Rezan Yesilbas
