A Tale Of Three Sisters
A TALE OF THREE SISTERS tells the story of three sisters from a poor village in Central Anatolia. The girls were adopted by affluent families as foster children (in Turkish ‘besleme’) in the hope of improving their lives. However, all three are forced to return to the village due to unforseen circumstances.
When Reyhan (Cemre Ebüzziya) returns home pregnant, her father Şevket (Müfit Kayacan) hastily marries her off to the poor village shepherd Veysel (Kayhan Açikgöz), who is being treated with contempt not only in the village, but also in Şevket’s (Müfit Kayacan) home. Havva (Helin Kandemir) comes back after the sad but inevitable death of her foster-brother, who has been fighting a terminal illness. A few days after Havva’s (Helin Kandemir) return, Nurhan (Ece Yüksel) is brought back to the village by her foster-father Necati (Kubilay Tunçer). For the first time in years, Reyhan (Cemre Ebüzziya), Havva (Helin Kandemir) and Nurhan (Ece Yüksel) are reunited. Şevket’s (Müfit Kayacan) greatest challenge is to persuade Necati (Kubilay Tunçer) to take Havva (Helin Kandemir) as ‘besleme’ into his home following Nurhan’s (Ece Yüksel) departure. With the help of the village mayor, he puts pressure on Necati (Kubilay Tunçer). Veysel (Kayhan Açikgöz), who also has an agenda to leave as he despises being a shepherd, asks Necati (Kubilay Tunçer) for a job that will take him out of the village.
As the three sisters negotiate their new yet familiar surroundings and relationships, Şevket (Müfit Kayacan), Necati (Kubilay Tunçer) and Veysel (Kayhan Açikgöz) gather around a dinner table, all of which results in a series of unexpected clashes.
