After she comes across a young girl’s video plea for help after her family prevents her from taking up her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory, actress Behnaz Jafari abandons her shoot and, with filmmaker Jafar Panahi, decides to help the girl. The two friends travel to the rural Northwest, where they have amusing encounters with the charming and generous people of the girl's mountain village, but Behnaz and Jafar also discover that old traditions die hard. “An immersive, pleasurably intelligent movie,” said The New York Times. The film is not rated and is in Persian, Azerbaijani and Turkish with English subtitles.
