“Sara and her husband Hamed and their little daughter have been invited to a wedding in north of Iran, but Hamed cannot travel due to work-related problems and this is the beginning of an incident that changes Sara’s life,” a synopsis of the film reads.
The film is starring Sahar Dolatshahi, Pejman Jamshidi, Azita Hajian, and Hassan Pourshirazi.
‘180° Rule’ has so far won a number of awards at some global events, including the 2020 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival in Canada and the 2020 edition of the Valladolid International Film Festival in Spain.
It is currently competing at the Borderlines Film Festival in the UK and will soon vie at the Hong Kong International Film Festival.
