Writer/director/star Yilmaz Erdoğan (The Butterfly's Dream) scores big with this boisterous epic spanning decades recounting the story of a small-town mayor and his three beautiful daughters. Farah Zeynep Addullah (The Butterly's Dream; Whisper If I Forget) also stars as one of the daughters.

Aziz Özay (Erdoğan) protects his children’s virtue and his leadership of the town with the same fervor, but he cannot stop the girls from growing up—nor can he control the tide of history, which moves across Turkey in the form of political crisis. From grand mountain vistas to ribald humor, Sour Apples is a warm-hearted crowd pleaser.
