Description:
Despite being issued with a ban on filmmaking, Jafar Panahi continues to make pictures of obstacles in the path of ordinary Iranians striving to realise their dreams. Winner of the Cannes Film Festival's Best Screenplay Award.

Well-known actress Behnaz Jafari is distraught by a provincial girl's video plea for help - oppressed by her family forbidding her to pursue her studies at the Tehran drama conservatory. Behnaz abandons her shoot and turns to filmmaker Jafar Panahi to help solve the mystery of the young girl's troubles. They travel by car to the rural northwest where they have amusing encounters with the charming folk of the girl's mountain village. But the city visitors soon discover that the protection of age-old traditions is as generous as local hospitality…

"Social networks are extremely popular in Iran. There is a mad quest for contact, especially with film celebrities. Despite his position as a director officially forbidden in his own country, Jafar Panahi remains a very popular recipient of messages, many from young people who want to make films. /.../ One day, he received a message on Instagram that raised a concern, and during the same period the newspapers wrote about a young girl who had committed suicide because she had been banned from making movies. This made him imagine receiving a video of this suicide by social media, and he wondered how he would react to that." (Jean-Michel Frodon)
