Iran | 2013 | col | dir. Ali Ahmadzadeh, with Mina Sadati, Nazanin Farahani, Pegah Ahangarani | UK premiere

Portraying the life and relationships of the wealthy youngsters of Iran, this road-movie takes viewers into the well-kept, secret worlds of upper-class Iran. Negin is spending a few days on holiday with her boyfriend Omid and her sister Nazan in a villa on the banks of the Caspian Sea. Not having had news of Omid for several hours, Negin decides to go with her friend Farnaz to a party being held by Kami, a mutual friend. The two young women drive off to Lavassan, a small district on the outskirts of Tehran, where the party is taking place. Negin doesn’t realise, however, that a surprise awaits her in the trunk of the car. An essential new film showing a side to the country not many in the West will have seen.
