In '21 Days and Me,' experimental documentary filmmaker Shirin Baraghnavard examines a complicated moment of her own life. As a 35 year old woman who has been married for 11 years, Baraghnavard believes she still has plenty of time to decide whether she wants to become a mother or not. However, the discovery of a fibroma in her womb suddenly makes the decision more urgent. Because the fibroma requires surgery to remove it, and Baraghnavard's doctor has told her the best time to get pregnant is directly after the surgery, she can no longer afford to wait. With compelling openness, Baraghnavard records the emotional journey she takes during the 21 days leading up to the operation as she struggles with the issues of her decision.
