This compelling and sensitive feature directorial debut by Iranian-American writer-director Maryam Keshavarz tells of youthful passion and idealism stamped on by tradition in modern-day Tehran. Atafeh (Nikohl Boosheri) and Shireen (Sarah Kazemy) are two girls approaching adulthood, the former from a fairly liberal and wealthy family and the second from a less cozy background. They go to parties, drink and fall in love with each other.
