Sepideh is a young Iranian woman who dreams of becoming an astronaut. At night, she stares up at the sky while taking lessons from a space fanatic who teaches schoolchildren about astronomy. At home, full of hope and longing, she watches recordings of the world's first female space tourist, Iranian-American, Anousheh Ansari.
When Sepideh's father died suddenly six years ago, she discovered that she could feel closer to him by watching the stars, and so her dream was born. But not everyone around her appreciates her boundless ambition.
With no money to pay for university, her mother and uncle are worried about her future. She doesn't want to learn how to cook, hardly ever visits her family, and doesn't seem to be thinking about marriage at all.
This documentary follows this brave young woman as she watches the stars, while tensions steadily rise at school, in the mosque and at home.
