Until Tomorrow

Ali Asgari

Iran, France, Qatar, 2022 / 86 min / Farsi OV with English subtitles / Drama

Fereshteh is studying and works at a printers’ shop in Tehran. She wants to emigrate to the United States but is having trouble finding the time for a language course. This is because she also has a two-month-old baby that her parents know nothing about. When they announce on short notice that they are coming to visit, Fereshteh must find a place for one night for her illegitimate child and everything that would give away her existence. What at first seems resolvable with a phone call to a few friends soon develops into a difficult undertaking. Fereshteh’s quick-witted friend Atefeh offers her support, but their ensuing odyssey through the city only reveals to the pair how limited their options are. In a society that does not grant everyone the same rights, young women must choose their allies carefully.
