Summary:

This documentary follows Masoumeh Soltan Bolaghie, the first female bus driver in the Muslim world, as she drives her bus on a 20-hour journey from the Iranian capital, Tehran, to the port city of Bandar Abbas on the Gulf coast. The changes in the lives and roles of women in a period of transition in Iran are explored. In a country where womens choices, including what they wear, are restricted by legal and religious doctrine, Masoumeh is a symbol of determination for change to take place in this Islamic society.
