A Thousand Women Like Me

2000 NR

When Sharzad (Niki Karimi), an attorney in Iran, loses custody of her diabetic son following a divorce, she finds her world turned upside down. With the courts biased in favor of her ex-husband, Sharzad must find the strength to change her circumstances. Reminiscent of Lars von Trier's heroines, Sharzad is representative of other modern Iranian women struggling to be heard in a country that is still a patriarchal society at heart.
