From Milena Aboyan

With her wedding day approaching no longer virgin Elaha finds herself split between Kurdish culture and sexual liberation. Her quest to surgically reconstruct her hymen lays bare a questionable practice that is still an everyday occurrence. Elaha is a self-determined woman setting her own rules to sexuality in this vivid, authentic film that rightfully stays close to its multilayered protagonist.
