My Name is Happy

Mutlu Kaya lives with her family in a small Turkish village. After competing in a reality show, the young singer becomes an instant star. A few days after the broadcast, a burglar shoots her in the head. As she recovers, her sister, who is there by her side, is murdered by her husband. As Mutlu copes with her physical and mental injuries, she begins protesting against the state’s indifference to the widespread phenomenon of femicide, and her voice becomes a symbol of resistance and defiance.
