"Cold Sweat” focuses on women's rights. Iranian women's futsal team is on the verge of playing its most important game of all times when the captain of the team finds out she has been travel-banned by her husband. She has to deal with the challenge at the airport and later at home.
The film bagged several nominations and awards at the 36th Fajr Film Festival, including a Crystal Simorgh for the Best Actor in a Leading Role which went to Amir Jadidi and another Crystal Simorgh for the Best Actress in a Supporting Role that was presented to Sahar Dolatshahi.
It has also attended a number of international film events, including the 2018 Cinema and Human Rights Festival in France.
