Based on a true story...
Afarin is a strong Iranian woman who never gives up and isn't afraid of failure.
After her husband dies, Afarin fights sexism to become a lawyer in Tehran. When her daughter becomes pregnant after emigrating to Canada with her abusive husband, outspoken Afarin travels to be with her only to be shut out when she clashes with her son-in-law. She returns to Iran only to be called back again when her daughter and her husband separate.
Alone and penniless, she goes to a shelter where she becomes a translator for women who can't speak English, giving them a voice.
Determined to achieve her goal to practice law, once more, Afarin returns to school to become a strong, independent, self-assured advocate for women's empowerment with the message for women to go beyond their boundaries and strengthen their rights.
After hitting boundaries, experiencing failure, and surviving war and abuse, Afarin's story is one of love, loss, joy, and sorrow, with the solitary message of empowerment for women to fight for their rights, think positively, and persevere.
