From acclaimed director Tahmineh Milani (Two Women) comes this searing tale about the struggles of women in modern-day Iran. Poor Sima puts up with her philandering and abusive husband, Ahmad. He is so blatant with his indiscretions that he asks Sima to cover for him when he plans a trip with his girlfriend, Saba. In an Iran where unmarried couples can be arrested for fraternizing in public, Ahmad needs Sima to pretend that Saba is his cousin--a situation that proves both humiliating and dangerous. Marila Zarei (The Fifth Reaction) and Amin Hayayee (Coma), two of Iran's newest stars, shine in this controversial drama. In Farsi with English subtitles.
