Seven people in Tehran: intellectuals, artists, workers, civil servants. As if in a documentary, the camera accompanies them through their everyday lives. At work, in their partnerships, in their struggles with the authorities. Their stories criss-cross and connect to become a mosaic of Iranian society in close-up, in which issues like the position of women and the role of the regime become tangible. Tales is Rakshan Banietemad's first fictional film for almost a decade and one of the most significant Iranian films of the year.
