REVENGE meets MIDNIGHT EXPRESS in this survival tale of an adulterous woman is hunted by her own relatives to wash the family honor.

A young couple makes love when a cop barges in. Young and athletic Ayse escapes but her lover dies.
Now all the men in her family are chasing her around the city and the countryside to avenge their honor. Ayse’s only key for survival is to become as ruthless as those hunting her.

Honor crimes still make the news constantly in several countries today. Women killed by their own parents, husbands, brothers, cousins… to defend archaic values. AV THE HUNT is a realistic thriller depicting a young woman’s fight in a patriarchal society that is bound to create headlines too with its strong feminist message.
