Director View :
In Iran's today society making a film about prostitutes is a real challenge cause the society and government deny their very existence. Now it's much more difficult that your protagonist be an ex-prostitute.
I tried to show a woman behind bars and fences all over today's Tehran, whom is trying to overcome all the intolerance and traditional and religious dogmatism in her society, to live and stay alive. A society which doesn't wish to let her forget the past.
When this woman “Fariba” releases herself from her house that is actually her prison , she finds herself in a bigger prison that is the society. This is a true story , the scriptwriter used to have a neighbor like this and he told me when she ran away from her house nobody didn’t know where she went and what is she doing until now and then It was a motivation for me to make this true story a film that shows this kind of women’s issues in society. After this film has been released , the government didn’t give the permission for screening for this film because of the bitter realism that was inside the scenes of this film and showed the bitter truth of the society.
