About

A young Iranian mother and her six-year-old daughter finds refuge in an Australian women’s shelter during the two weeks of Iranian New Year (Nowrooz) which is celebrated as a time of renewal and rebirth. Aided by the strong community of women at the refuge they seek their freedom in this new world of possibilities, only to find themselves facing the violence they tried so hard to escape. "One of the most masterful debuts of a filmmaker that I've seen in a long time." (FilmWeek).
