Mohammad Reza Forutan,
Marzieh is a young female actress living in Tehran. The authorities ban her theatre work and, like all young people in Iran, she is forced to lead a secret life in order to express herself artistically. At an underground rave, she meets Iranian born Saman, now an Australian citizen, who offers her a way out of her country and the possibility of living without fear. Written by
the movie shows only a part of the civilization in Iran,and in fact the part that does not have any special plan in their lives but to be happy at the time by helping of the drugs... if the writer wanted to show the complexity or the difficulties of Iranian people who are willing to leave their home land, then she/he should focused on normal and clean people. if I wanted to show this matters then I would go for scientists who can not do science due to their beliefs or an ordinary family who don't want their child to be educated under the abyss of the dictatorship not for some drug users and people who wants to party all nights (though they have the right)
any way the movie is well done and worth to see. and the director and casts were brave to do it.
