Mahmood Ghaffari collaborated with filmmakers Bahman Ghobadi and Asghar Farhadi, among others, before directing his first feature film, IT'S A DREAM.
Roya is a resourceful young woman who is juggling with loans to pay back a large debt. With her gift of the gab and her determination to fight her way out, she finds herself at the top of a small ponzi scheme that promises to be lucrative, but very soon the mechanism seizes up and a sense of control gives way to anxiety.
With a sense of narrative sequencing akin to his senior, Jafar Panahi (The Circle, Blood and Gold), Mahmoud Ghaffari portrays a protagonist hemmed in by a double straightjacket, one where social and gender inequality are inextricably intertwined.
But social and sexual inequality throws a wrench in the works for this fighter. One can never shake off one’s shackles so easily.
