In this stunning drama from Ali Soozandeh the lives of several Iranian women and one male musician intersect as they struggle with the strict religious laws of Tehran. As they rebel against prohibitions and break taboos, the double standards within the city become increasingly restrictive. Through rotoscope animation Soozandeh paints a portrait of contemporary Tehran unlike any other.
