They go from hospital to hospital in search for help, but none of the hospitals will admit the young woman and provide her with the medical attention she desperately requires. While they try hard to find a way to solve the problem, they have to hide what is happening from their parents. Moreover, their relationship is facing a crisis and will suffer dire consequences. Caught between conservative traditions and modern day desires, the couple must face their uncertain future.

Brilliantly executed medical and relationship nightmare
10 June 2020 | by baharukaSee all my reviews

You start driving through the empty streets of Iran and walking the hospitals corridors with a couple who did the "unthinkable" around midnight: They had sex outside of marriage and encountered a medical problem because of it. You pay a small visit to the residence and party culture, observe the striking difference between different generations, classes, and mentalities, and have an effective peak into the troubled couple's relationship. Very good acting and directing. As a person who comes from a similar culture and has had many medical emergencies, I can also say the movie is eerily realistic. It doesn't bore and has a good length. I'd recommend.
