Parviz has no other choice but surrender his place to his step-mother and leave home. Parviz finds it difficult to get used to this new solitary life far from his neighborhood and the people he knows. He thus concocts a novel way of fighting back against the injustice done to him.

“PELAN" is a nonprofit and nonpartisan project, organized by a group of students and graduates of "Simon Fraser University (SFU)" in Vancouver. “PELAN" has been initially designed for screening the contemporary documentaries and short films about Iranian people made by independent Iranian/non-Iranian directors. While these movies may have been banned in Iran, they have been presented in international film festivals all around the world. So, we believe this is a great opportunity for Iranian living in Vancouver to watch these artworks on a bigger scale. “PELAN" was established in 2013 and it has been happening since then and so far we have screened several documentaries from Iranian filmmakers who work inside and outside of Iran. We've also been organizing online Q&A sessions with the directors/producers at the end of the screenings.
