About the film:
THE HEIRESS (German: Die Erbin)
Germany, Turkey | 2013 | 72 minutes | Turkish with English subtitles
In a small Turkish mountain village, Hülya returns from Germany to write a novel about her deceased father. While she observes, she does not always get an equally positive picture of her father and the dramatic events that shaped his life and hers. Confusing memories fall into place. At the same time, present and past, reality and fantasy start mingling increasingly. Nature, idyllic one time and merciless the next, forms the atmospheric decor for this reflection on the value of family bonds, love, and honor.
