No Bears is a 2022 Iranian drama film written, directed and produced by Jafar Panahi. The film was secretly shot in Iran

In parallel love stories, two couples face the social power structure in which they find themselves. At the same time, director Jafar Panahi unwittingly becomes involved in a political riot in the village when he is asked to share a photograph of a couple in a forbidden relationship. The drama escalates and it soon becomes clear how seemingly innocent artistic actions, can have extreme consequences. Faced with so many challenges, Panahi reflects on the inability to leave his homeland of Iran. Although it seems as simple as simply stepping across an invisible border in the middle of the night, somewhere on a deserted hill.
