Golsa (Negar Moghaddam) is a 16-year-old girl living with her middle-class family in a suburb of Tehran. She spends most of her time hanging out with a group of disaffected friends. When she's not running with the group she works at a nearby ranch tending to the horses. After an incident where a little bit of fun goes wrong, the group decide on a course of action that may have unexpected consequences for them all. The events that follow radically change Golsa's perspective on life.

Director Pooya Badkoobeh won a Special Jury Award at the 68th Berlin International Film Festival for his simmering and incisive debut feature. Lead actress and newcomer Negar Moghaddam won Best Actress in the ‘Asia NewTalent’ section at the 21st Shanghai International Film Festival.
