‘Asgari builds a tense and resonant drama from this most simple of premises, one that hinges on a moving performance by the director’s niece, Sadaf Asgari… [The film] has a lot to say about the way younger generations in Iran right now are picking away, thread by thread, at the country’s suffocating web of legal and social censure.’—Lee Marshall, Screen
