From the director: This short film consists of seven short documentary movies picturing, in the bluntest way of narration, seven of the most common forms of sexual harassment taking place in Iran today. Rape and sexual harassment take place throughout the world in a ll cultures and religions. This work is not a criticism on the concept or the act of rape, but rather a bitter allegory of the victims left alone without any support in Iran.
