Directed by: Maziyeh Meshkini
(88 mins) The stories of three women enslaved by love in Iran. On the morning of the day she turns 9, Havva is kept from joining her friends to play outside of the house. She is warned by her mother and grandmother that she has become a woman. Learning that she was born at noon, Havva insists she should be given another hour to go out as a girl one last time. A young woman is competing in a women's biking race on an island as she is persistently pursued by her husband, in-laws, and the elders of her clan. While riding their horses to catch up with her, they all try to persuade her to return to her family life. An old lady in a wheelchair lands in an island airport and hires a local young boy to assist her in a shopping spree, in search of what she's always needed.
