Pari is a sixty five year old woman who lives on the outskirts of Tehran. Each day she travels over six hours into the sprawling city to work as a cleaning lady for the middle class ladies of north Tehran.

We travel behind the scenes to witness the extraordinary life of Pari, a strong woman who has carried her family through many adversities.
