Set across Istanbul and Oxford, from the 1980s to 2016, ‚Three Daughters of Eve‘ is a sweeping tale of faith and friendship, tradition and modernity, love and an unexpected betrayal.
Peri, a wealthy Turkish housewife and mother, in on her way to a dinner Party at a seaside mansion in Istanbul when a beggar snatches her handbag. As she wrestles to get it back, a photograph falls to the ground – an old Polaroid of three Young women and their University Professor. A relic from the past – and a love – that Peri had tried desperately to forget.
