This animated drama from exiled Iranian Ali Soozandeh tells the different life stories of women living in conservative and patriarchal Tehran. We see a young woman who has lost her virginity after a night out at a nightclub and desperately needs to restore it on the black market before her upcoming wedding. We meet a pregnant housewife who is prevented from working when her husband refuses to sign a certificate that gives his permission because he wants her to take care of his sick father. We also see the single mother Pari who is forced into prostitution to convince a senior judge to dissolve her unhappy marriage. The film was nominated for two awards at the Cannes Film Festival.
