A young Iranian woman suffers from the sexual roles and borders society left in her mind. To overcome the feeling of shame, she tries to discover her true feelings and emotions by experiencing sexual intercourse with random people. (Writer: Unknown, but it is cool!)


A transwoman encourages her partner as much as she can to sleep with different people as she is crazy, masochistic and she always talks about the nonsense topics such as feminisms, gender, sexuality, body issues, bi-sexuality, filmmaking, shame, guilt etc. This of course goes on the nerves of her partner who suffers from the sexual desires of her trans partner. After 8 years of efforts and sufferings, the partner of this transwoman finally decides to change from a hetero cis monogamous woman to a feminist person who finally decides to know a bit more about herself, to discover her true feelings and emotions by experiencing sexual intercourse with random people. So that at the end of the day there would not be any potato. They both live happily and separately. How much one needs to give away just for deciding to know more about herself?
