Synopsis

LOVE, SPELLS AND ALL THAT is the story of two women who begin to question their belief in love and the laws of physics.

As teenagers, Eren, the daughter of a powerful member of the Turkish parliament, and Reyhan, the daughter of the keeper in the summer house that Eren’s family owns, fall deeply in love. Their ill-fated love affair gets ended abruptly and forcibly by Eren’s parents. 20 years later, Eren catches a glimpse of Reyhan on social media, which prompts her to leave Europe and come looking for her. When she finds Reyhan, Eren tells her that she never loved anyone else like her and that she is still in love with her. Unwilling to acknowledge their past at first, Reyhan soon begins to believe that a love spell she had put on Eren 20 years ago has brought her back to the island. Eren is not superstitious but she can’t help questioning if the spell might be real. They embark on a day-long journey together as they try to lift the love spell, despite Eren’s determination to win Reyhan’s heart.

Acclaimed filmmaker Ümit Ünal, along with his brilliant lead actresses (Selen Uçer and Ece Dizdar), delivers a magical love story that will have you under its spell.
