Rebellion, subculture, friendship.

A group of young women and men defy written and unwritten laws when they band together to create a safe space for themselves in Tehran. A memorable in-your-face scene mocks state censorship of films in Iran, but in fact the footage had to be filmed, under cover, in Lebanon.

--‘Sundance’ meets the Iranian New Wave.
