City of Women - Shahre Zanan - شهر زنان

Centering upon a community of women who have divided themselves from men, 'City Of Women' explores themes of female strength and individual freedom. In an attempt to end the feud between the Keshtgar and Shavan families, Khan Jan decrees that unless the children of the two families marry, the Keshtgars will be forbidden from using the family garden at Ab Ask and the Shavans will retain control of the properties. When the daughter of the Keshtgars, Mahtab, gets accepted into university, she takes it upon herself to fight this ridiculous law and unite the families by other means. Compelling drama from Ataollah Hayati about the complications brought about by the separation of the sexes. Essential viewing.

According to Khan Jan’s will, his garden and mansion which are both located in Ab Ask, belong to the Keshtgar and Ashvan families as long as their children are married to each other, otherwise the Keshtgar family has no rights to these properties and they entierly belong to the Ashvan family. Mahta, the daughter of Mirza Hassan Keshtgar, is accepted to med school and all the villagers are happy for her, except her uncle’s wife Malous Khanoum, whose son Borzou now has to wait for her to finish med school and then marry her. While they celebrate Mahta’s success, Malous Khanoum tries to give the engagement ring to her but she can’t take it off of her finger. Mahta claims that she will marry Borzou provided the ring comes off of Malous Khanoum’s finger. While the two families are preparing for the engagement ceremony, a phone call makes everything seem suspicious. The man calling Mahta is the janitor working for one of Narges Khatoun’s relatives. Narges Khatoun was a highly loathed and hated woman because she had decided to choose a man she truly loved as her husband and disregarded her family’s disapproval. Mahta does not intend to explain the situation and expects her family and her uncle to trust and respect her. Borzou however, has traveled with Mahta to the city before and knows who Narges Khatoun’s relative is and also knows the reason of the phone call, which is restoring Narges Khatoun’s decayed tombstone. While men are away loading snow into a large depot as a tradition, the janitor arrives in the village and the tension rises up. Malous Khanoum and her daughter and some of the other inhabitants beat and wound him. Mahta however takes the janitor and Narges Khatoun’s side, who are actually her ancestors. The governor of the city of women encourages Mahta to make decisions for herself on her own. Now that she has full control of her own life, she intends to choose a young groom among the villagers and marry him, but Borzou proves himself before anybody else does as Mahta expected, so she gives him the flowers and they marry each other.

مطابق وصیت خان جان، باغ و عمارت وی در آب اسک که به صورت مشاع بین دو طایفه، کشتگر، و اشوان وقف شده، تا زمانی که فرزندان دو خانواده با هم وصلت کنند در تصرف این دو طایفه خواهد بود و در غیر این صورت، حق تصرف ملک از خانواده کشتگر ساقط و به خانواده شوان منتقل میشود. مهتا، دختر میرزاحسن کشتگر، که به تازگی در آزمون ورودی دانشکده پزشکی قبول شده، همه اهالی روستا را شاد میکند به جز ملوس خانم زن عمویش، که پسرش برزو چند سال دیگر باید در انتظار پایان تحصیل مهتا برای ازدواج با او بماند.
در جشنی که برای مهتا گرفته می شود ملوس خانم سعی می کند تا حلقه ازدواج را به مهتا بدهد اما حلقه از انگشتش خارج نمی شود و در نتیجه مهتاب اعلام می کند که به شرط درآمدن انگشت از دست ملوس خانم، حاضر به ازدواج با برز و خواهد شد.
دو خانواده، آماده مراسم نامزدی می شوند. اما تماس تلفنی مردی با مهتا، همه را به شک می اندازد. مرد که سرایدار یکی از بازماندگان نرگس خاتون (زنی که به دلیل ابراز عشق به یک مرد و انتخاب شوهر بدون واسطه فامیل در سالها قبل تکفیر شده) است و مهتا حاضر نیست درباره اش توضیح بدهد و انتظار دارد خانواده خود و عمویش به او اطمینان داشته باشند. البته برزو که قبلاً با مهتا برای دیدن بازماندگان نرگس خاتون به شهر رفته، از موضوع مطلع است و دلیل تماس تلفنی را که تعمیر سنگ قبر پوسیده ی نرگس خاتون است را میداند...
در روز سنتی حکومت زنان روستا، که طی آن مردان برای ذخیره کردن برف در یک انبار بزرگ به خارج از روستا می روند، اختلاف و بدبینی به اوج میرسد. در این روز وقتی سرایدار به روستا می آید ملوس خانم و دخترش با کمک دیگر اهالی او را کتک زده و مجروح می کنند، اما مهتا از سرایدار و همچنین نرگس خاتون که از اجداد خودش هستند دفاع میکند. حاکم شهر زنان نیز سرانجام پس از سالها از تصمیم او برای انتخاب آینده اش تقدیر میکند...
حالا مهتا، خود برای آینده اش تصمیم می گیرد تا سر راه جوانان روستا قرار گیرد که توسط یکی از آنها انتخاب شود، اما برزو قبل از بقیه ی پسران جوان، سر راه او حاضر می شود و مهتا که از قبل انتظارش را داشته، دسته گل خود را به او می دهد تا ازدواج آنها سر بگیرد...
