Anahita’s Republic is a provocative and timely thriller set in Tehran, where strong, educated, and committed women work under constant threat to advance the well-being of their country.
Anahita is a woman who refuses to wear the hijab and rules her own republic where she can live, dress, and speak as she pleases. To deal with the world outside of her compound, she controls the family business and the life of her brother Cyrus. One night, on the eve of an important secret meeting between progressive leaders, a young woman in a chador comes to Anahita’s compound, carrying explosive secrets that might destroy everything Anahita has tried to build.
