In co-directors Nick Read & Ayse Toprak's emotional film, Kurdish teenager Mutlu Kaya survives a shooting by a stalker after reaching the finals of Turkey's Got Talent. Mutlu sustains life-changing injuries and a bullet in her brain. Five years later, escalating attacks on Turkish women again intrude as Mutlu’s carer and sister Dilek is killed by her boyfriend, and a neighbour is murdered by her fiancé. Mutlu relentlessly pursues justice for her sister's murder, turning to Tik-Tok and her 2 million followers for support. The film celebrates Mutlu's resilience, strength, and determination, evoking the story of Nobel Prize winner, Malala Yousafzai. It reminds us that hope and happiness can prevail even in the face of extreme adversity.
