Four women from different social classes share the fact that they live in a condition of oppression, in the deeply chauvinistic society of contemporary Iran. Only work, and with it economic independence, gives them a glimmer of opportunity to take their destiny into their own hands. The film is made with the collaboration of 19 women and intends to tell about the conditions and the courage to change the things Iranian women have.
