Until Tomorrow


Fereshteh is studying and works at a printers’ shop in Tehran. She wants to go to the US but is having trouble finding the time to take a language courses - she has a two-months-old baby, of whom her parents know nothing. When they announce at short notice that they are coming to visit, Fereshteh has to find another 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 have to weigh up carefully who their allies are.
