Ma dar Behesht (Paradise)

Hanieh, a 24-year-old Tehran middle-class woman, wakes up early every morning and travels a long way to teach at a primary school in a wild and poor suburb. Sick of her life, Hanieh is trying to get transfered to a school in the city, but the paperwork appears to be stuck somewhere in the daunting Iranian administration. When, one day, she arrives at the school to find out that two female students have disappeared and are feared to have been kidnapped, her problems suddenly seem petty. (Festival information)
