You don't have to be a run away bride to have your groom chasing you. Get married and participate in a bicycle race. That will take care of the chasing part!

The Day I Became A Woman is a three-part allegorical vision which consists of episodes from the lives of three women, at different stages of their life: childhood, adulthood, and old age. Set at the island of Kish, the movie has a surreal quality about it.

In the first episode, little Hava is an hour away from her ninth birthday, at which time she must begin wearing the traditional chador, and will no longer be allowed to play with her friend Hassan, the neighbourhood boy. The second episode shows Ahoo, a young married women, participating in an all-female cycling race. The last episode concerns an old women, who has received an inheritence, and is finally able to purchase all the consumer goods she could never afford before. The three episodes, offer a fascinating insights into what it means to 'become a woman'.

It is a splendid, surreal film that reveals how Iranian women struggle to deal with the man's idea of a woman. The movie contains some unforgettable scenes, like a woman cyclist with her black chador flying behind her, and who is being chased by her husband on a horseback, who is threatening divorce if she doesn’t get back to her housewifely duties instead.
