Composer Sara Najafi (and the director’s sister in her private life) tries to bring the voice back to Iranian women who, since the Islamic resolution, have not been allowed to sing solo in public places, especially before a male audience. With the help of singers from Iran and France, she decides to organize a concert in Teheran that will enable the banned voices to be heard and, at the same time, remind people the achievements of the greatest Iranian artists from before 1979. Will she be able to convince the local authorities to support the project?
