Tehran—a city with double standards: religious dogma and legal restrictions rule communal life, pleasure takes place only in hiding. Teheran Tabu describes the lives of four young people and their pursuit of happiness. The courage born of desperation drives them on, as each searches for a bit of leeway within a rigid system. An animation film as a dismally shimmering metropolitan panorama of a society strapped by constraints.
