Farahnaz Sharifi, born in the year of the Islamic revolution, grows up in a family and a world that resists revolutionary constraints - at least in her private life. She is seven years old when she gets to know the other world. The world of prohibitions, control and confinement. A world in which she has to wear a hijab - a piece of cloth that is more than just a piece of cloth. And a world in which there is no room for dancing, singing and exuberance. She contrasts public coercion with freedom in private, control with resistance, forgetting with remembering. She collects private recordings, 8mm films and VHS recordings that people who have left the country leave behind in their homes. The mobile phone becomes an instrument for capturing, documenting and remembering. The now worldwide movement "Woman, Life, Freedom" began 45 years ago with the demonstrations of thousands of courageous women who took to the streets and have been resisting ever since.
