Bengaluru International Film Festival - BIFFES

Synopsis

Out of boredom, Golsa and her friends rob a kiosk. They realise they had left the video from the security camera behind and someone has to return to the scene of the crime and retrieve it. Instead of handing others the recording, she hides it in a stable – the one place where she feels most free. In the shadows of Iranian upper class society, she is looking for a way to deal with what she did. However, for fear of their social esteem her accomplices and their families put her under increasing pressure. Golsa begins to resist the seemingly ubiquitous logic of power, extortion and money.
