Rana, a conservative young mother, has been secretly driving a cab to support her family since her husband went to jail. When she picks up Adineh, a young woman from a wealthy family who is fleeing an arranged marriage and the country for a transgender operation, it’s a clash of class and belief systems. Rana is initially suspicious and terrified of Adineh and her bold ways. But Adineh, used to being an outsider, is very supportive of Rana and and her own boldness in driving her husband’s taxi against his express orders, and an unlikely alliance forms.

 

This award-winning first Iranian fictional feature about transgenders, and a road movie of sorts, unites a female team of veteran writer/producer Fereshteh Taerpour with debut writer/director Negar Azarbayjani. Shayesteh Irani (Adineh), last seen in Offside, was nominated for her brave performance for Best Actress at APSA 2011.
