Climbing Iran

Nasim has strong hands adorned with hot-pink fingernail polish. She is the pioneer of outdoor climbing in Iran, where women should train in their veils on ‘indoor’ walls only, during set hours, and only among other women. The film portraits an extra-ordinary woman determined to push the barriers opposing her passion, whether they are physical, social, psychological, geographical or ideological.

Committed to "change things little by little", she brings a few other young women  to the walls of Polekhab, outside Tehran, teaching them how to climb and get independent.
