SYNOPSIS

The film depicts a group of young people from the LGBT-club at Bogazici University in Istanbul, who live under the repressive norms of the Erdogan regime. The youth speak intimately about how the conservative policies have affected their lives and show that despite the difficulties in openly expressing their gender and sexual identities, they still fight to live true to themselves, as shown in a spectacular drag show two of the students put on for the film.
