Winner of Best Film at the 31st Fajr International Film Festival, director Behnam Behzadi’s second feature brings bravura camera work and charged plotting to the clash between generations.  A theater troupe of twentysomethings plans to present its latest play abroad until the father of its star refuses permission for her to leave.  Roiled emotions and bad decisions make matters worse and the safe haven of their rehearsal space quickly comes to feel like a compound under siege.
