A group of students tries to stage a play, but the new school principal bans the performance and punishes Kaveh, the director. The rebellion of some high school students against school authority, staged by star director Mehrjui, was often interpreted at the time as an allegory of the revolution. The film was supported by “Kanoon”, the “Institute for the Intellectual Development of Children and Young Adults”, whose film department Abbas Kiarostami co-founded.
Followed by a film talk with Robert Safarian (film critic, Tehran).
