Safar The journey
Amina, Fatoma and Asma are three friends from small and distant islands of the Persian Golf, right south of Iran. They managed to go to university in Teheran from where they take a train that will bring them back to their native village. The movie Safar follows them along the ride, in the intimacy of a compartment. As the hours go by, this ordinary journey, without specific geographical markers, turns into an introspection during which the girls recount their paths and analyse them with bewildering lucidity. As the landscapes pass behind the window, three lifepaths made of dreams and desires as well as hesitation and doubts are unveilded.
