​​​​​​​The Road recounts the journey of three Tajik women from their release from prison to the capital Dushanbe. Their trip is full of beautiful encounters but also of misadventures. Far from the female archetypes of the country, the three heroines appear as free and enterprising women. The film echoes the difficulties that some women encounter in their desire for emancipation and the reactions of society. Forcing them to come to terms with their respective pasts. 

Nossir Saidov, who graduated from the Tajik State Institute of Art, is one of the few Tajik directors whose films are an event as soon as they are released in the country. In 2009, he directed his first feature film,True Noon which got selected at the International Film Festival Rotterdam and the Busan International Film Festival.
