"Chilling...controversial. A compelling sociological portrait." -- Alissa Simon, Senses Of Cinema

Banned in Iran, this taboo-breaking film uses the claustrophobic life of women behind bars as a metaphor for Iranian society since the 1979 Islamic Revolution. Mitra, in prison for killing her violent stepfather, confronts new warden Tahereh on the eve of a riot, fearlessly challenging her dogmatic views - which, over time, began to change.

The Global Film Initiative promotes cross-cultural understanding through cinema. Each year, films from developing contries are selected to tour the United Staes as part of the Global Lens Film Series, playing at prestigious cultural institutions such as New York's Museum of Modern Art.
