a complex tale of urban Iran in 2001. Tuba is the breadwinner and mainstay of her family where she is buffeted about by her disabled husband and oldest son. women and girls in this non-religious family are treated with some respect but ultimately have no say in the circumstances of their lives in either the family or the greater community. poverty, politics and religious dictates rule them all.

I would like to see more of the films by this director but this is the only one in my library.
