Shayda, a brave Iranian mother, finds refuge in an Australian women’s shelter with her six-year-old daughter. Over Persian New Year, they take solace in Nowruz rituals and new beginnings, but when her estranged husband re-enters their lives, Shayda’s path to freedom is jeopardized.
I am in awe of the millions of mothers and daughters fighting for their basic human rights. This film is dedicated to my mother – who found freedom for herself and for her daughter in Australia – and the brave women and girls of Iran.
