- A Projector exclusive-

Brash, unapologetic and darkly humourous, Iranian filmmaker Ali Soonzandeh’s brilliantly animated debut feature is a shocking peek into the interconnecting lives of three women in their desperate search for freedom under the yoke of religious law in Iran.

Armed with smarts and straight up courage, these ladies start to push back against the mire of sexual extortions, virginity ‘restorations’ and misogynistic bureaucracies - but can rebellion be without consequence?

"An engrossing story and characters, depicted in a visually stunning manner. Director Ali Soozandeh surveys a range of contemporary Iranian issues in this impressive rotoscoped animation." -Little White Lies
