16 Women at the age of 20-80 years are talking about their past and future, dreams and wishes…

16 women, 16 stories, 16 fates in Teheran. Women aged between 20 and 80. 16 women finding their self conception. Snapshots. What are their thoughts, feelings, actions? What is it they expect from their lives? This film by Bahar Ebrahim is an appraisal of 16 women in every day situations, their ideas, visions and perceptions. 16 Iranian women and their views on the past, loneliness, men, fashion, love, freedom and self determination. Two of them remain silent, convincing the others to immerse in music and dance. Art in shape of a warming coat for the soul.

“Life is a prison, my eyes an ocean of tears. Oh Life, sweet life, I have had enough of you, let me go.“
