In an argument with his wife Burcu, Oray pronounces the Islamic word for separation, ‘talaq’. The Imam informs Oray that he must now part from Burcu for three months. Oray uses the enforced break to make a fresh start in a new town. But when Oray and Burcu reconcile, his new imam advocates a stricter interpretation of Islamic law: divorce. ORAY tells the story of a man caught between his belief in love and his love for his faith. Winner of the Best First Feature at the 2019 Berlin Film Festival.
