Facing Mirrors

Starting with the (wo)man in the mirror.

In FACING MIRRORS, we meet Rana, a traditionally devout wife who drives a cab in order to support her family while her husband is in jail – and Adineh, whose father’s plan of marrying her away does not match her own plans of fleeing the country to undergo a sex change operation. By sheer circumstance, the two women’s destinies are intertwined, as they realize that despite their differences they have a lot in common – as well as the power to help each other out of a difficult situation.
