Until Tomorrow

Fereshteh receives an unexpected phone call from her parents; they want to visit. She immediately freaks out, because what her parents do not know, and are definitively must not know, is that shortly before, she had a child, a child out of wedlock. This is not only illegal, but also completely unacceptable in the eyes of her parents. There is only one thing left: she must find someone willing to look after her child for a night - and she does not have much time. In her search, she is assisted by her humorous friend Atefeh. The search is far from smooth; who can you trust, who not?

In his second feature film, Iranian director Ali Asgari shows how young people from Iran, especially young Iranian women, deal with the restrictions imposed on them by the strict Islamic regime, while they themselves long for a much freer life. Thread by thread, they try to unravel the suffocating web of legal and social censorship.
