Coming of age in Iran, Ava faces pressure to conform to the expectations of her parents, her school, and her friends. When Ava learns that her parents were once flagrant rule breakers themselves, she begins to rebel against the very foundations of her society. Ava masterfully demonstrates how a culture of authority can force denial and detachment, particularly among young women during their formative yet vulnerable high school years. Ava is an Iran-Canada-Qatar co-production that was shot in Iran.

Ava received eight Canadian Screen Award nominations at the 6th Canadian Screen Awards and was named Best First Feature.
