The film shows the constant dance-like struggle of Shadi (the daughter of Iranian activist who were forced to take political asylum in Sweden in 1979) and a group of 4 dancers from the Gothenburg Dance Company. The women act as Shadi’s avatars, mirroring her psyche, where the movements express the inner struggle we have all experienced within our own mind – a mind that can turn from caring friend, in loving synch with our own movements, to opponent – coaxing, dragging, pushing, fighting us.
