Three actresses at different stages of their career. One from before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, one popular star of today known throughout the country and a young girl longing to attend a drama conservatory.
Jong-su bumps into a girl who used to live in the same neighborhood as him, who asks him to look after her cat while on a trip to Africa. When back, she introduces Ben, a mysterious guy she met there, who confesses his secret hobby.
Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari is left distraught when she comes across a provincial girl's video plea for help, after her family prevents her from taking up her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help with the young girl's troubles. They travel by car to the rural northwest, where they have amusing encounters with the charming and generous folk of the girl's mountain village. But Behnaz and Jafar also discover that old traditions die hard.Written by
First of all I want to share my emotions after the movie (I will not add any words that contain spoilers). This film is just worth to be watched if you want to know what is happening in the lives of people in countries where honor and dignity are above all. Above their desires, their grand dreams, their plans, their lives. How it's difficult for people to live, according to our humble version, in the mountainous settlements of Iran (South Azerbaijan). How hard they have to live when there is not enough help from the townspeople. But despite all this, everything ends at the will of the person himself, whose desires are above honor and dignity.
