Summary "This film is a dramatic depiction of the oppression and discrimination against women in Iran. Three women are on temporary leave from prison and their stories intersect. The film opens with a woman in a hospital waiting room. Her daughter has just given birth. Her joy quickly turns to dismay when she learns that the expected baby boy is a girl. She knows that her son-in-law's family will abandon her daughter and so she flees the waiting room before the in-laws arrive. Banned in Iran, this film won several awards, including the Golden Lion at the 2000 Venice Film Festival. Directed by Jafar Panahi, and stars Nargess Mamizadeh and Maryiam Palvin Almani.
