Synopsis

Newly single mother Pari is forced to turn to prostitution after a court refuses to grant her a divorce from her drug-addict husband. Moving in to an apartment in the Iranian capital of Tehran with her mute son Elias, she soon finds an unintentional friend in new neighbour Sara. Sara is a middle class woman with a seemingly idyllic family life, but has her own secrets, from which the company of Pari is a welcome distraction. At the same time, a young musician and an engaged girl are crossing the city trying to raise money for an illegal operation following a night spent together in a nightclub. The lives of these unlikely allies move together in unexpected ways in this provocative, sometimes graphic, but intelligent and insightful examination of Iranian society and the restrictions placed on its young people.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
