Busra is a 26-year-old journalist in Istanbul, working for left-leaning media. It has been years since she deserted her pious life in a strict, and increasingly influential, Muslim group. Now, she needs to go back to her conservative community in pursuit of an autobiographical graphic novel. As the religious movement her father is still a part of becomes ever more intertwined with the state, Busra will confront not only her past but also Turkey’s changing political dynamics.
