This film focuses on the legacy of influential singer Tülay German in a time of social unrest in which her music became the launch pad of political activism. A vigorous and committed woman, German defied family and social expectations with her professional, political, and love choices (her partner was the left thinker Erdem Buri. Didem Pekün gives her personal and sympathetic view of the Turkish artist as she explores the connections between art, politics, and identity –a key issue in the context of the current social and economic crisis.
