Remarkably, the director of this drama set in a Tehran suburb was only 17 years old. She relates the true story of a protective father who keeps his 11 year old twin daughters prisoners in their own home, to save them from the evils of the outside world, until nosy neighbours intervene. Screened for 'One World Week'.
