Circumstance is a 2011 lesbian dramatic film written and directed by Maryam Keshavarz starring Nikohl Boosheri, Sarah Kazemy, and Reza Sixo Safai. It explores homosexuality in modern Iran, among other subjects.
Plot of Circumstance:
Atafeh is the high school girl of a well off Iranian family in Tehran. She and her closest companion, the stranded Shireen (Sarah Kazemy) go to illegal gatherings and explore different avenues regarding sex, drinking, and medications.
Atafeh’s sibling Mehran is a recouping drug junkie who turns out to be progressively religious and fixated on Shireen, concurring with the crumple of his once-solid association with his sister.
The leaders of the family are the Hakimi guardians, Firouz and Azar, who think back on their childhood and what has gotten to be and what will happen to their family.
