Other Angels


by Emre Yalgın

Turkey 2010, 84 min

Love against society‘s rules

Sanem shares an apartment with three other transvestites in the backstreets of Istanbul and earns her living by prostitution. While dreaming of a hero to save her from this life, she casts an eye at Gökhan, who has recently moved into the neighbourhood. Shyly straying around him, she manages to attract Gökhan's attention and an unspoken relationship starts between them. After a punter’s attack, Sanem takes shelter in Gökhan's house. Together they go on a journey during which Gökhan questions Sanem's identity – and Sanem questions her lover’s trust.
