First Iranian movie starring a transgender as central figure is a progressive road movie in which fate brings together two very different women, Rana and Adineh, as they drive around Tehran.

Synopsis

Rana is a young mother from a poor, traditional Iranian family. Ever since her husband was unlawfully imprisoned, she secretly works as a taxi driver to financially support her family. During one of her taxi rides she meets Adineh, a woman from a rich family who has fled her elderly home. Gradually, Rana finds out what motivated Adineh to run away: she is transgender and refuses to be married off. Adineh wants to be a man for the rest of her life and prepares for a sex-change operation. This is hard to accept for conservative-minded Rana, as her passenger’s lifestyle goes against everything she believes in and everything she has been taught. Yet little by little an improbable friendship between both women develops.
