Synopsis

Arash and Anoosh are at the centre if Tehran's underground techno scene. Tired of hiding from the police and their stagnating career, they organize one last manic techno rave under dangerous circumstances in the desert. Back in Tehran they try their luck selling their illegaly printed album without permission. When Anoosh is arrested, there seems to be no hope left. But then they receive a phone call from the biggest techno festival in the world. Once landed in Switzerland, the haze of instant euphoria evaporates quickly when the seriousness of the situation starts to dawn on them.
