Synopsis

After having sought permission for seven years from Iranian authorities, Mehrdad Oskouei finally receives the permission to follow the lives of a group of Iranian girls in custody in a rehabilitation centre in Teheran. Charged with crimes like murder and drug detention, just to mention a couple, these teenagers spend their days between the desire to return to freedom and the fear of what is awaiting them outside. The director crafts a compassionate film, eye-opening and heart breaking, about the dreams, nightmares and hopes of these young women, living their lives in the misogynous and patriarchal society that Iran still remains today.
