Abstract:

Filmed entirely inside a ladies washroom in a public park in Tehran, this film is a remarkable vérité look at the hidden lives of Iranian women. In the ladies, the women feel comfortable enough to smoke cigarettes, discuss taboo subjects, and remove their veils. They are also free to acknowledge that some of them are runaways, drug addicts, or prostitutes--all classes of persons that do not officially exist in Iran. Iranian actress Mahnaz Afzali engages these women in a series of revealing conversations, which shatter many Western preconceptions of how Iranian women lead their lives.
