Through rotoscoping animation, Ali Soozandeh presents a transgressive insight into society in underground Tehran. with Tehran Taboo.
When prostitute and single mum Pari moves into an apartment with her mute son, she unintentionally befriends her new neighbour Sara. Sara is a middle-class mullah who seemingly has a perfect family life but who too hides her own secrets, and so the company of Pari is a welcome escape. The lives of the two women become further intertwined with that of a struggling musician as he tries to raise money for an illegal operation for the girl who gave him her virginity. As stories of sex, drugs and corruption unravel, the lives of the unlikely allies prove more alike than one might think – perhaps the consequences of the restrictions Iranian society has put up upon them.
