Living with her well-to-do parents in Tehran, Ava is a bright and focused teen whose concerns friendships, music, social status, academic performance resemble that of nearly any teenager. When Ava's mistrustful and overprotective mother questions her relationship with a boy going so far as to visit a gynecologist Ava is overwhelmed by a newfound rage. Formerly a model student, Ava begins to rebel against the strictures imposed by her parents, her school, and the society at large.
