This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
Navid, an Iranian Kurd living in Tehran, meets Setareh during the protests that erupt following the 2009 elections. They continue their political activism at their university until one day Navid is thrown out. To cap it all, Setareh’s father tells him to stay away from his daughter if Navid really loves her, so the argument goes, he will not ruin her future by continuing to woo her as a penniless man. Navid pleads for a period of grace. As we observe him making his way through the loud and hectic Tehran, we gain an insight into the different social circles and ways of life in this city. This allows us to experience at close quarters the powerlessness of a lost generation which feels robbed of its birthright, and whose protests come to nothing.
