New Directors Competition
Hanieh is a broke forty year old woman on the verge of being thrown out from her apartment by her landlord. She has tried to make a film based on her own semi-autobiographical script for years, but she has no other choice than selling the script to one of her best friends who is capable of directing the film. Due to her love for the script and its details, Hanieh is not able to tolerate any indifferent and ignorant reactions during the pre-production stages, but she decides not to get involved in any conflict with the director, the cast and the crew. However, during the reading rehearsal, when others begin to judge her character as described in the script and name her a loser, Hanieh loses her temper and gets anxious. The investor calls off the project and Hanieh’s mother appears to force her to sell her deceased father’s house, which makes the situation even more complicated.
Presented at the South by Southwest Film Festival (SXSW).
