The Glass House is a 2009 Iranian documentary film directed by Hamid Rahmanian. It follows the story of four young women that try to escape from the cruel traditionalism of the Iranian society by attending a rehabilitation center in Tehran. Samira struggles to overcome her drug addiction; Mitra seeks refuge from her brutal reality through creative writing; Sussan is fighting to overcome the psychological trauma caused by years of sexual abuse, while Nazila is hiding her hatred and aggression by listening to rap music. The scenes are filmed with a virtually invisible camera, offering the audience a raw and close-up look at a side of Iran that nobody has ever seen. Separated from the society ruled by traditions and harsh rules, where women have no means of expressing themselves, these girls show viewers their desire and determination to find a meaning in their lives and instill the hope and peace in their troubled minds.
