rated for 0 + yearsANIMATION In the schizophrenic world of Teheran, the paths of three self-confident women and one male musician cross. In the city, sex, corruption, prostitution and drugs are a parallel universe to the restrictive religious regime. Circumventing bans has become a national sport and breaking taboos a means of self-realization. Tehran Taboo is a gripping, disturbing journey to the dark corners of Iranian society, where nothing is as it seems and where the public view does not usually reach.
