By following the main character, Sepideh and her fight for achieving her dream for several years, the film also becomes an exploration of the social dynamics among the young generation in Iran, as well as an investigation of the complexities in the relationship between generations, between individuals and the larger context.
The film wanted to explore the potential of the visual language to enter Sepideh’s interior world and the vast universe that enthrals her, the world of imagination, feelings and longing.
