the story....


Years after the Islamic revolution in Iran, a woman finds herself in a room with no door. From her only window, she experiences real and surreal visions. Are these memories, dreams, nightmares or her reality? Have these occurrences come to pass or are they yet to happen?  In a way, she is a microcosm of the country she comes from. At times she sees herself roaming freely beyond her confinement on the streets of Tehran. Her attempts to escape the place and to find what is real will prove difficult, and submerse her further into her surreal world.
