Fest of Duty

The Fest of Duty is a religious ceremony designed to instil Islamic beliefs and values in girls when they reach the age of nine. This film follows two adolescent cousins as they transition into adulthood eight years after their official Fest of Duty, and observes the divergent impact of religious doctrine on the public and private lives of two teenage girls who come to symbolize the conflicting cultural values in Iran today.
