Stray explores what it means to live as a being without status or security, following three strays as they embark on inconspicuous journeys through Turkish society.
Zeytin, fiercely independent, embarks on adventures through the city at night; Nazar, nurturing and protective, easily befriends the humans around her; while Kartal, a shy puppy living on the outskirts of a construction site, finds companions in the security guards who care for her. The strays’ disparate lives intersect when they each form intimate bonds with a group of young Syrians with whom they share the streets. Director Elizabeth Lo’s award-winning film is a critical observation of human civilization through the unfamiliar gaze of dogs and a sensory voyage into new ways of seeing.

Not a dog person?
If you prefer cats to dogs then you might want to check out Ceyda Torun''s 2016 documentary Kedi, which In many ways, Stray could be considered a companion piece. Torun's film explores life in Istanbul through the eyes of the stray cats that live in the city. It is a fascinating and funny slice of life and a must for cat lovers. You can find out where to stream the film on its website (and admire the Cast of Cats section).
