CIRCUMSTANCE is set in contemporary Iran, in the unseen world of the country's youth culture, filled with underground parties, sex, drugs and defiance.

The film tells the story of two vivacious young girls - Atafeh and Shireen - discovering their sexuality and struggling with their desires and the boundaries placed upon them by the world into which they were born.

Winner of the Sundance Audience Award, CIRCUMSTANCE is a thrilling exposé of an Iranian culture rarely seen. Maryam Keshavarz’s directorial debut has blazed a promising trail at film festivals the world over, challenging audiences' preconceived ideas of a society and how women can defy the rules imposed upon them, despite the dangers they face.
