For Shayda (Zar Amir Ebrahimi), an Iranian living in Australia, the holiday marks the start of a new life away from her abusive husband. Inspired by Noora Niasari’s own experiences, this impressive debut is an unusual coming of age, celebrating the indomitable spirit and resilience of Iranian women.
