The Rialto Theatre is the venue that has been chosen in Cyprus for the simultaneous display on the 28 EU countries, the winner of the Lux Prize of the European Parliament, Mustang movie.

Early summer. In a village in northern Turkey, Lale and her four sisters are walking home from school, playing innocently with some boys. The immorality of their play sets off a scandal that has unexpected consequences. The family home is progressively transformed into a prison ; instruction in homemaking replaces school and marriages start being arranged. The five sisters who share a common passion for freedom, find ways of getting around the constraints imposed on them.
