An Iranian female Ex-Political prisoner living in London is trying to find peace in her life but her traumatic past haunts her...
"Five" is a story which examines the psyche of a traumatic past; the ways in which one internalizes trauma and moves through it. Set in the interior of a woman’s home in exile, we see the main character's struggle with ordinary daily issues, rationalization and denials associated with PTSD, and the reconciliation of trauma into the mundanities of everyday life. Using surrealist elements, "FIVE" hones in on the more nuanced ways that survivors deal with trauma. The film strives to capture what “surviving” looks like day-to-day and moment-to-moment, without centering the story around the brutality of the act itself. "FIVE" is inspired by real-life story of a woman whose fate exemplifies the imprisonment of political activists in Iran.
