Ekrem Ergün / Germany 2015 / 84min / German with English subtitles
Suitable for secondary pupils (14 to 16).
After a run in with the law, Aylin (Almila Bagriacik) – a 17-year-old Muslim girl from the Turkish diaspora – finds herself sentenced to community service at an out-of-town horse stable in Germany.
Beset by troubles at home and school, it is here that Aylin, against the odds, finds the road to self-discovery. As the pace quickens, her blossoming relationship with the stallion Hördur is tested to the breaking point, as are her fledgling dreams. Can Aylin build a bridge between worlds? And if she can, will others follow?
