In Turkey, opposition politicians who oppose the state apparatus face violence, agitation, and repression, and they are being dismissed, persecuted, and imprisoned. Since November 4, 2016, When Erdoğan's AKP party came to power, hundreds of opposition politicians have been jailed or forced into exile to silence them. This film shows the struggle of four Kurdish women politicians, Figen Yüksekdağ, Gültan Kışanak, Aysel Tuğluk, and Sibel Yiğitalp, whose "Crime" was to fight for a hopeful and pluralistic world against an anti-democratic government.
