Eight years into his filmmaking ban, Jafar Panahi (Taxi, This Is Not a Film) continues his mischievous studies of life in Iran – this time taking on the patriarchal life of rural communities.
When actor Behnaz receives an apparent suicide note from a young girl who has been forbidden to study drama by her family, she flees her movie set – bemused director in tow – and sets off on a road-trip to find the girl, encountering a host of eccentric villagers along the way.
