Unaware of their daughter’s illegitimate child, the sudden visit of Fereshteh’s parents drives the student and her baby on an odyssey through Tehran. Fereshteh needs to hide the child. In a race against time, the young woman and her friend Atefeh are entirely at the mercy of the absurd laws that the Iranian state has decided for women. Finding allies is impossible; the danger of being arrested is omnipresent. Ali Asgar’s film clearly shows what it means for women in Iran to live outside traditional family structures. At the same time, it recounts the bravery of the generation of millennials who are challenging the patriarchal value system.
This film is a touching, critical contemporary document in the form of a feature film.
