More than one in three Turkish women have experienced domestic abuse and the number of femicides is rising. But some Turkish women are fighting back. Ipek Bozkurt, a courageous lawyer, is determined to challenge this misogynistic trend by putting abusive men behind bars. Working with a group of activists, she fights to get justice for two survivors of horrific assaults: Arzu, married at 14 and Kubra, a successful TV presenter. She struggles not only against a biased legal system but an increasingly repressive government, leaving Ipek, like thousands of other lawyers, fearing imprisonment.
