Afrooz is the captain of the international women’s Futsal National Team. After eleven years of hard work, her dream is finally about to become a reality as she will be leading her team in the Women’s Asia Cup’s Final. As she goes through security at Tehran airport, she finds that her husband, a famous television host, has banned her from exiting the country. In Iran, a husband has the legal right to ban his wife from travelling abroad. Supported by her close friend and co-team player, her only option is to persuade her estranged husband to let her leave the country, as well as fight the conservative and hypocritical ways of the Futsal federation. Based on real events, Permission is the story of a strong woman who keeps on battling, hoping one day to change the law to allow more gender equality. "A vehement film about a grotesque injustice." Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
