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 Anonymous

Story: An Iranian girl wants to be an actress & gets a famous Iranian actress to investigate her desire. A relatively tame presentation of the issue. I've seen many movies on what young females, wherever they may be (including unlikely Western democracies), face to maintain family honor though obedience & marriage, e.g. coercion, shaming, disowning, punishment, imprisonment, & death. "A women who wants to study dishonors her family." "God blesses families with a son." "Marriage would make her forget about studies." Others to watch: "Difret", "A Suitable Girl", "What Will People Say", "He Named Me Malala".
