The Film: THE IRAN JOB follows American basketball player Kevin Sheppard as he accepts a job offer to play in the Iranian Basketball League. With tensions running high between Iran and the West, Kevin tries to separate sports from politics only to find that politics is impossible to escape from in Iran. Along the way he forms an unlikely alliance with three outspoken Iranian women. Thanks to these women, his apartment turns into an oasis of free speech, where they discuss everything from politics to religion to gender roles. Kevin’s season in Iran culminates in something much bigger than basketball: the uprising and subsequent suppression of Iran’s reformist Green Movement.
