According to Alissa Simon in Variety, the movie is a "cautionary tale of universal resonance" that "spins a tension-filled drama about a naive but highly principled young woman from the provinces who comes to Tehran to study medicine, only to wind up in a legal nightmare due to her kind and trusting nature." It "benefits immensely from the smart and sensitive performances of an all-pro cast, particularly the two femme leads."[2]
