Outside, a crowd is protesting in a violent atmosphere; inside, young Sara sings against the cool breeze of a fan. Her heavily pregnant mother Naz and her activist aunt Christina discuss politics. Under growing pressure from the world of adults, Sara creates her own imaginative world of songs, stories and games. This film by the Iranian Parisa Yousef Doust is set in an undefined country, where tradition is at odds with the thirst for freedom.
