The Iran we know is one of oppressive governments, terrorist threats and religious dogmatism, but for seven young Iranians, the pursuit of sex, booze, and rock and roll rules their world. With two thirds of the population under thirty in a repressive society, we see how young would-be lovers attempt to snatch a few private moments, a homosexual deals with the pressures of an arranged marriage and a liberated woman asserts herself. This is Iran as we have never seen it before.

Secretly shot in Tehran, Hossein Keshavarz ‘s courageous debut feature provides a fascinating glimpse of the quiet rebellion among the youth of that country, and the bonds of religious autocracy that thwart them from expressing themselves except behind closed doors. With a cast and crew working under pseudonyms, this is a searingly authentic look at modern life in Iran and the startling similarity of the quests of youth, regardless of culture, environment or religion.
