Based on real events, the film follows two young musicians, Ashkan and Negar. The couple have recently served prison terms for breaching the ban on "Western and decadent music." For Negar, as a female musician, unauthorized public performances can carry savage penalties. Their search for paperwork that will permit them to leave for Europe takes them into Tehran and a vibrant underground culture of rappers, rockers, electro-artists and singer-songwriters who risk arrest to perform Western songs overlaid with their own politicized lyrics.
