Hayat var

Directed by Reha Erdem

Fourteen-year-old Hayat lives with her father and bedridden grandfather in a shack next to the dark, beautiful waters of the Bosphorus. Neglected by her parents, Hayat crosses the threshold into puberty and has to confront the drought of real love and the brutality in her life on the margins.
