Seven independent female filmmakers voice their concerns about their political, creative and personal lives in the context of the society they live in.
In the context of recent political, economic and cultural upheavals in Iran, the filmmakers who collaborated on this film create a diaristic account of nationhood and the notion of identity through the prism of their own experiences, all set to a soundtrack of music banned by the state. Shirin discusses a ‘silent’ war in Tehran that goes unreported. Firouzeh articulates her fear of creative censorship; Farahnaz laments how music has disappeared from public life since women were forbidden to sing; Mina regrets the loss of friends who have moved abroad; Sepideh highlights the correlation between personal loss and the inception of the Iranian Revolution; Sahar reflects on life from a prison cell, and Nahid shares her hopes for the future.
