Whistling across the hilly fields in rural Turkey is Sibel’s only way to communicate. Ostracized by the villagers for her muteness, the headman’s daughter aspires to kill a renowned wolf to gain community recognition, only to encounter a wounded fugitive who awakens many forces within her. Folklores, ancestral resentment and a kind of emancipation come together in this touching and resplendent drama – a poignant portrait of a free-spirited and uncompromising woman who needs no words or whistles to live fully.
