Living in post-revolutionary Tehran, Layla refuses to bow to the ayatollah’s rules, resisting her mother’s relentless attempts to find her a suitable husband. Instead, she embarks on an illicit affair with her art teacher Keyvan, and they tentatively imagine a future together. But the sudden death of her uncle, an outspoken journalist, raises many unanswered questions and when Layla’s cousin, who is visiting from America, is arrested by the morality police, the Komiteh, Layla’s plans for the future begin to unravel. Beneath the polished surface of upper-class Iranian life lies pain, fear and dark, dark secrets.
