Loosely based on Sadaf Foroughi’s own life in Tehran and winner of the FIPRESCI Discovery Award at last year’s Toronto International Film Festival, this debut film recounts the life of a high school girl in Iran becoming more complicated after her mother catches her in an act of rebellion. Much like Asghar Farhadi’s films, Sadaf Foroughi’s command of a complex narrative, questions the conditioning of women in Iran.
