Niloofar, 35 years old, lives in a male-dominated environment that is as thick as the polluted air outside her Tehran home.
When doctors insist that her aged mother must leave the smoggy city or she will have not long to live, Niloofar’s older siblings decide that she must also move away to the countryside to look after their mother.
Desperate to forge her own way in life, but finding her opportunities limited, Niloofar is pushed to more drastic action. Behnam Behzadi's latest tense drama is another fascinating account of life in contemporary Iran.
