Gozaran - Time Passing

Composer Nader Mashayekhi dreams of a modern Iranian Philharmonic Orchestra. His dream becomes true - but then times change in Iran.

Persian avant-garde composer Nader Mashayekhi becomes the chief conductor of the Tehran Symphony Orchestra. Together with the musicians, who are frustrated by continual censorship, he tries to raise the orchestra to international performance level. However, after the 2009 elections, it becomes impossible for the orchestra to make music in Tehran and Nader must leave Iran. What has become of his dream and the young musicians he was forced to leave behind?
