"The Good Education"
The exams are close, the school year is coming to an end for Peipei, a young artist aspirant of a high school of Henan Province, a poor district of China. Abandoned by her parents, scapegoat of her classmates and teachers, this “wild flower” has never conformed to the rules of the institution and has trouble finding her place.
A young woman tries to reconstruct the trip her friend took to Brazil for the Football World Cup. While she has no news of him, she relies on the images he sent her to find his trace.
Gharshelegh is a tradition among the Turkmen people of Raz and Jargalan County located in Northeast Iran. This is in fact a kind of boy and girl exchange among families, with an intention of marriage. Alireza is a young man of 36 years who, along with his sister, became a victim of this tradition after being forced to marry his own cousin. After visiting Tehran and seeing open relationships between men and women, he gets frustrated and after a while separates from his wife. After several years, Alireza has now decided to choose a spouse once again, regardless of the wishes of his parents, and by ignoring cumbersome old traditions.
