Pull the curtains, hide yourself, don't open the door, be afraid, you are being watched! A real portrail of a what it is like, when you are imprisoned. Panahi, wisely avoids making the movie overly political, thus letting all of us able to relate. No matter the issue in your life, fear locks you up. And it is fear to blame not the outside world.
