    • Synopsis
    • Nine peasant women living in Arslankoy, a mountain village in southern Turkey spend their days working hard in the fields, on the construction sites and at home. To ease up the burden of life, these women come together for an entirely different reason. They intend to write and perform a play based on their own life stories. They gather at the local high school, which they were afraid of even stepping into until that day and start working with the principal, Mr. Huseyin. In the process, they reveal their life stories that they couldn’t even confess to themselves before. For days on end, under the curious gazes of the village men, they work tirelessly, discuss and create with much fun a play, “The Outcry of Women!” This documentary is about the development of this play and the changes it brought in the lives of its creators.
