Criminal lawyer Canan (an excellent Tulin Ozen) faces the last day of a murder trial in which she is defending a factory worker accused of killing his boss; her client’s scar is the “hesitation wound” of the title. As usual, she has spent the night by her comatose mother’s hospital bed, but she is never less than elegant, incisive and in control, even as a key witness goes missing and the courtroom’s ceiling plaster starts falling down during her closing speech. Her sister argues they should let their mother die, but Canan can’t just let go of anything. A remarkable portrait of a woman dealing with the failing Turkish legal system while facing her own demons and decisions.
