Kuma

Fatma lives in Vienna with her family, and they maintain the traditions of their old homeland, Turkey. When the young Turkish woman Ayse marries into the family, the two women develop a friendship based on deep trust. “Kuma” is the story of this relationship, and of the rift that develops between them when Ayse oversteps the limits Fatma has laid down.
