Synopsis

Afrooz is the captain of Iran Futsal National Team, whose long-sought dream, playing in the Asian Games Final has come true at the age of 30 and after 11 years of hard work. She finds out at the airport that her husband, a famous television host, has used his legal right and banned her from exiting the country. The team's security supervisor, her lawyer, and her best friend and teammates all believe that her only solution is to persuade her husband to let her leave the country. Although Afrooz knows she must break her pride and waive her own right by doing so, she decides to convince him in any way possible.

"Cold Sweat" is the story of capable and distinguished women who do not quit fighting although they are fed up with the current laws and "Cold Sweat" has covered their bodies.
