Forced to move apartments, husband and wife Emad and Rana decamp to a different building offered by a friend. Both part of a local theatre group, while Emad is out rehearsing one night, Rana stays at home and is violently attacked by a man who gets into the building. Hurt and afraid Rana struggles to come to terms with what has happened and pulls away from Emad, while he is torn between the want to revenge her attacker and what is morally right. Made by an award winning Iranian filmmaker, he is known for his poignant dramas that explore difficult personal relationships in the context of modern-day Iranian culture and socio-political issues. This is a thoughtful and at times intense thriller that reveals what happens when a loving couple is forced to cope with a shocking situation.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
