Summary, etc.:
Based on the acclaimed novel by Zulfu Livaneli and set amidst Turkey's natural wonders, Bliss is a riveting tale about love, honor, freedom and redemption. When a 17-year-old girl, Meryem, is found unconscious and disheveled by the side of a lake, her family believes the worst - that her chastity has been lost. To uphold the family honor they turn to an ancient moral code that condemns Meryem to death. A distant cousin, Cemal, is ordered to carry out the task. Instead, Meryem and Cemal embark on a surprising journey across traditional and modern-day Turkey in this unforgettable film.
