    Five innocent young girls from in a Turkish village just want to have fun. They want to go to the beach, hook up with boys, and marry who they want. But the society they live in won’t have any of that. They are subjected to a life of servitude, and there is no one to rescue them; no prince is charming.

    After bidding their teacher, who is moving to Istanbul, an emotional farewell, five orphaned sisters decided to have a little fun. They went to the beach and played with boys, who carried them on their backs. When their grandmother hears about it, she scolds them for behaving like whores and locks them up in the house, to begin preparing them to be marriage. But the girls want to have a life of their own. They want to marry people they love, drive a car, wear cute clothes, go watch a football match, and kiss boys. But their grandmother and uncle won’t have that. Freedom is expensive in this Turkish village. The fear of losing their freedom forces them to initiate dangerous plans to escape.

    The struggle for freedom

    Mustang is a Golden Globe and Oscar-nominated movie about the struggle to attain freedom. Every human being wants to be free to decide what they do with their lives. Five orphaned girls living in a Turkish village get to realize that the society in which they live can have a severe impact and consequence on their future. The movie also discusses young love as the oldest sister, Sonay, sneaks out every time to meet her lover. Another critical subject the film deals with the issue of sexual molestation of little girls by an older man. Erol, their uncle, continually harasses the girls. What makes it even worse is that their grandmother, knows about it, but won’t say anything.

    Lost of innocence

    There is also the issue of child marriage. The grandmother believes that marrying off the girls at a tender age saves them from falling into immorality, something the whole village upholds as a virtue. Mustang is a sad reminder of the kind of world children around the world are forced to live in. It is also full of fun, laughs, cries, and hope. Mustang is recommended for everyone who loves freedom and everything that comes with it.

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    10 Ways to Lace Up Your Shoes Creatively

    Perhaps one of the hardest things a 4-year-old kid can learn is to tie his shoes. On the contrary, for adults like us, it’s the simplest and probably the most boring activity we can think of. I’m pretty sure you wouldn’t want to register for a seminar on how to lace shoes, right!

    It’s obvious, you don’t even need to use your brain when tying shoelaces. Look back up, I said most b-o-r-i-n-g a while ago when I mentioned lacing shoes up. But I will take that back. Why? Because when I saw the post from Diply featuring videos of lacing up shoes artistically, I realize how intricate, complicated, and creative it is to lace up shoes. That is if you do it like the way we do it on the featured videos.
