There is no Friend’s House

Two friends, school mates, try to break the rules, just like any other teenager in the world. These are rites of passage that countless generations have lived through. But in this case, the two friends are Iranian and society’s rules will make the consequences more painful.

At an Iranian school for girls, two friends try to get around the strict rules of customs and teaching and take a bottle of whiskey to have fun together. Much of the teenagers’ enthusiasm comes from the act of transgression and not so much from the contents of the bottle, but when they are caught by the school management, the justification of the events will test the friendship between the two, caught in a web of emotional manipulations in which different family backgrounds determine different forms of treatment. Power relations, authoritarianism and fear are manifested throughout Iranian society, and not even in an exclusively female school are women safe from male domination. (Margarida Moz)
