United by a twenty-year-old spell, two women journey through the neglected corners of their memories as they explore the island of Büyükada, Istanbul, in Love, Spells and All That.

After two decades of living abroad, Eren is suddenly drawn back to her hometown as she realizes that the one person she has ever loved is her childhood friend, Reyhan. Upon Eren’s return, she finds the abandoned Reyhan resigned to a simple life with an ordinary man. We soon learn that Reyhan cast a spell on Eren these many years ago.

Amid the beautiful island of Büyükada, Eren and Reyhan spend a magical day reclaiming their love, spells and all that.
