Amanagol (Altinay Ghelich Taghani), the daughter of a poor rural family in Iran, becomes "Aeman", when her father shaves her head, disguises her as a boy, and dispatches her to another village to work weaving carpets. Proficient at the job, "Arman" is nonetheless exploited by the owner and isolated from all those around her. Her secret becomes jeopardized when a young co-worker, engaged to an older man, falls in love with her.
Taghani's heart wrenching performance forcefully conveys the universal human need for freedom and love. Filled with breathtakingly beautiful and stark images of the rural Iranian countryside, Daughters Of The Sun is another powerful example of that country's increasingly daring national cinema.
