Summary 3 Women constitutes Iranian filmmaker Manijeh Hekmat's second feature film and focuses on the lives of three generations of women -- a grandmother, mother, and daughter -- all of whom struggle to come to grips with their past and their identity. Manoo -- a textile specialist who works tirelessly to protect antique rugs from being smuggled out of Iran -- is forced to drop everything when her elderly mother goes missing. Her mother, who is in the early stages of dementia, absconds with one of the rugs Manoo has been trying to protect and journeys to the village from which she was forced to flee as a young woman. Pegah, the youngest of the trio, embarks on her own journey -- a road trip into the desert -- during which time she meets a fellow traveler who is also trying to "find" himself. This beautifully told narrative highlights in a powerful way the human condition in all its strengths and frailties
