IRAN , Canada , Qatar | 102 minutes | 2017

A coming-of-age tale where the trust between a young Iranian girl and her parents is sorely tested after a disturbing visit to the gynecologist. A rebellious 16-year-old is on a burning quest to throw off the yoke of parental authority and the strict, deep-seated rules of her cultural milieu. The Tehran-born director delivers a powerful critique of a hypocritical society that crushes young girls’ passion and lust for life at an age when they’re at their most vulnerable
