Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife, is on her way to a dinner party at a
seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she
wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground - an old polaroid
of three young women and their university professor. A relic from a past -
and a love - Peri had tried desperately to forget. The photograph takes
Peri back to Oxford University, as an eighteen year old sent abroad for the
first time. To her dazzling, rebellious Professor and his life-changing
course on God. To her home with her two best friends, Shirin and Mona, and
their arguments about Islam and femininity. And finally, to the scandal
that tore them all apart.
