An interesting cultural story based in the village of Iran,on the border with Turkey! A famous actress and her director go to a small village due to their worry about an young woman, a talented wannabe entertainer's fate! Almost all scenes are made outdoors! Some scenes are quite humorous in this dramatic story!

It seems it is an international phenomena where the mindset and beliefs of village folk are often different and more conservative from the urban-living people! In this case, although the villagers adore the famous actors and films, but they are not so keen of one of their own becoming an actor, especially not a female!

The Iranian movies rarely disappoint, and this one delivers! An entertaining quality story told in Persian and Turkish, with the English subtitles! Persian is a beautiful poetic language to listen to!

( It's difficult for the Iranian people in the Entertainment industry! The Gov't censorship is really strict and a number of them ended up arrested for trivial reasons and for any perceived criticism of the gov't! Also, the film-making equipment is not as progressive as in the West! Yet, the Iranian Directors have produced a number of great Award-Winners on the International stage!)
