Screenings at Screenshot:
Only 14, Khatemeh runs away from her forced husband and aggressive brother and finds a haven in a female shelter. Shattered by her nightmarish domestic life, she hides away from her family as they pull every trick in their sleeves to take her back home. As the unceasing threats from her manipulative family get louder and closer, she finds it harder to pull herself together and stand for her own rights. A raw and immediate portrait of a girl on a constant run, this is a rollercoaster of a film that runs with rage, fear and an unceasing hope for deliverance.
