Hamid Nematollah's compelling
drama "stakes out a new path for Iranian cinema" (Variety)
as it exposes key problems plaguing modern-day Tehran. Johan is
a gentle and thoughtful young man who works as a window dresser
at a fashionable boutique. When a poor and very beautiful young
girl enters his store, Johan feels compelled to steal a pair of
blue jeans for her. This action triggers a downward spiral that
will change Johan's life forever. "Painfully real and engaging"
(Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times
