Exceptionally well-crafted and thought-provoking high stakes drama, Permission is a bold, uncompromising look at gender roles in the modern Middle East.

Afrooz has given her life to football. Now, as she is about to captain Iran’s national futsal team to the final of the Asian Nations Cup in Malaysia, her estranged husband exercises his legal right to refuse her permission to leave the country. Thus begins a battle in which the fiercely determined Afrooz uses any means necessary to fight the everyday injustices faced by women in Iran.
