Two vivacious girls begin to discover their sexuality, their desires and the limitations placed on them by the society in which they live. Set in modern Iran, this is a story of seldom seen Iranian youth culture. Positive, fun-filled lives fuelled by parties, defiance and more may not be the conventional take on life in Iran so be prepared to re-evaluate any media driven preconceptions.

This is a film that reveals how two women defy the rules, despite the dangers, to live their lives as they wish.

Thanks to Peccadillo Pictures.


Stirringly sensual. Grade: A-

Stunning! An amazingly accomplished and complex first feature from a filmmaker with something to say and the talent to say it.
