The story of six Iranian women who share their intimate experiences of life in Iran, oppression at the hands of the Islamic Republic, fear and dreams of the Iran they are fighting for. Their testimonies follow the story of Jina Mahsa Amini, an Iranian woman of Kurdish descent, who was brutally murdered at the hands of morality police in Iran in 2022, for her hair sticking out from under her hijab. The death of the young girl sparked a wave of protests. We learn from the inside about the emotions behind that revolution and the hopes for free Iran.
