Mina and Saeed live a stressful life in the Iranian capital, Tehran. Being a woman in Iran is not particularly easy and Mina sees a future for the family elsewhere. She wants to move abroad, but Saeed then invents a device that places the responsibility for the hijab where it belongs – with the men, whose gaze women need protection from. The Manchador is a satire about life in modern day Tehran, seeing, our senses, and spirituality.
