Innocence in Stock

Elaha is 21 years old and no longer a virgin. A problem she worries about every day. She needs to undo the damage and regain her lost virginity, which manifests itself between her legs and is considered a seal of approval in her culture. Her wedding and the wedding night that goes with it are coming up soon. Now traditions are catching up with her. Although it is not a forced marriage, she is under pressure to live up to her family and traditions.

INNOCENCE IN STOCK is the graduation film of Milena Aboyan at the Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg. The film will be realized together with SWR and Essence Film. The script was nominated for the Strittmatter Award and the Schreibsüchte Award of the Sehsüchte Film Festival in 2020.
