Niloofar is a young, unmarried woman living in Tehran. She owns a
small tailoring and alterations business employing several workers that she has
nurtured for almost a decade and enjoys pursing romantic interests. However, it
soon becomes clear that Niloofar has had little control over the choices in her
life. Her mother, with whom she shares an apartment and suffers from a chronic
pulmonary disease, is hospitalised and the family are warned by the doctors
that if she remains living amongst the smog-riddled streets of Tehran she will
die. While Niloofar believes that the whole family should share the
responsibility of looking after their mother, it is she who is expected to move
away from the city: as an unmarried woman, her desires seemingly hold no weight
with her brothers and other family members. Inversion is a quietly powerful
film about the ongoing fight for women’s liberation.
