Director's Statement:

In Iran's today making a film about prostitutes is a real challenge because the society and government deny their very existence. Now it's much more difficult that your protagonist be an ex-prostitute.

I tried to show a woman behind bars and fences all over today's Tehran, whom is trying to overcome all the intolerance and traditional and religious dogmatism in her society, to live and stay alive. A society which doesn't wish to let her forget the past.

After this film was made, the government didnít give the permission for screening it because of the bitter realism that was inside the scenes of this film and showed the bitter truth of the society.
