Synopsis: A look behind the curtain: In the West, one knows above all the Iranian moral rigor and war rhetoric, the Enduro professionals Anita and Caro Gehrig experience open-minded people, hospitality, a great interest in the West and last but not least an unconditional passion for mountain biking. There is a reason for this: The bike is a vehicle for freedom, because on the trails, no moral guardians exist. Freeride, or better Free Ride, gets another dimension in the land of mullahs. Altough you might not be able to understand each others words, on a bike you always speak the same language. Free Riding Iran is a movie about courage, passion and mutual inspiration on two wheels.
