A young university student in Tehran and her friend desperately try to find someone to take care of her baby for a few days while her parents are visiting her, not wanting to reveal the child she had in secret. As the day draws to a close, it becomes apparent her friends are neither willing nor able to help. The film explores the complicated and sensitive issues of sexual mores, social relations, pregnancy and the responsibilities of childrearing within the strictly religious society of Iran. With compelling performances and a heartbreaking story, Iranian director Asgari concludes his and screenwriter Farnoosh Samadi’s trilogy about the everyday limitations of women in contemporary Iran, which began with their film »Barbie«.
