In her second feature, writer/director Sadaf Foroughi delicately crafts a slow-burn coming-of-age drama that builds to a churning, heart-wrenching emotional climax. As Omid (Mehdi Ghorbani) trains for a prestigious swimming competition with the help of his friend and coach Mani (Benyamin Peyrovani), the scrutiny of their families and community threatens their growing bond. Through powerful, poetic cinematography and set against the stunningly rugged landscape of the Caspian Sea, Foroughi tells a story that pits family responsibility against a desire for vulnerability in traditional patriarchal Iranian society.
