Rebels in Iran, heroes in Zürich

Anoosh and Arash defy the Iranian regime every day by performing techno music. They have developed an impressive set of skills for avoiding the religious police who deem their music "satanic", but when Anoosh is arrested, they decide to let go of their dreams once and for all. All this changes, however, when they are invited to play at the world's biggest techno festival in Switzerland – suddenly they have to choose between their dreams and their old lives. RAVING IRAN is a thought-provoking documentary about ambitions, belonging and Iranian undergound music.
