Tahereh comes aboard this women's prison as the new warden. Tough and determined to get the prison into shape, she takes a harsh stance and believes that she can break each and every one of her inmates into submission. In particular, Mitra, who is in jail for having killed her abusive stepfather. Over the course of seventeen years, new inmates come and go, and the relationship between Mitra and Tahereh evolves. And through the life story of each inmate, their bonds, and their differences, we see a microcosm of the Iranian society in its post-revolution years. This is the debut feature film of Manijeh Hekmat, an industry veteran. Her daughter Pegah Ahangarani participates in the film playing the parts of Pegah, Sahar and Essy.
