Talk Radio Tehran
To the beat of "talk radio," a program entitled Strange Times, My Dears, three spirited women defy stereotypes in this dawn-to-dusk urban safari across Tehran. Follow Zohreh, the chic racer and many-times Rally champion; indomitable Madam Nosrat, the city's first ever female bus driver and feisty Sepideh who, with her colleagues, forms the world's only all-female firefighting team.With passion, humor and daring, they all challenge the status quo. Poignant radio segments form an ironical and provocative narrative for the journey, exposing a society often in conflict with itself.
