She has won many international awards for her movies. Love without Frontier is the first-ever Iranian film made in Hollywood. It tells the story of children of mixed Iranian –American parentage and the problems that they face.

‘ Twenty’ is the story of a reception hall owner. There are twenty days remaining before Mr. Soleimani closes his reception hall. The hall hosts mainly mourning receptions (and occasionally a wedding), and the sorrow they invariably bring has drained the owner so much that his psychologist has recommended closing down his business immediately. It’s a subtle, psychological drama, masterfully walking the line between comedy and tragedy.

Wet Dreams is the story of a sixteen-year-old Arash, preoccupied with his parents’ divorce and friends’ way of living, decides to break free from his mother’s domination by taking refuge in his father’s house.
In Lost Time, ten years after their married life, Dr, Shakibeh Moayed, an experienced and skilled obstetrician, and her husband, a textile designer, are deprived of the joy of having children. As a last resort to save their marriage, Dr. Moayed adopts an orphan girl, but her husband finds it impossible to accept the child as a member of his family.
