Synopsis

As economic sanctions tighten on Iran, it is the voiceless who suffer most. Leila (Raha Khodayari), a widow who works tirelessly at a failing factory, is trying to provide for her infant and her 12-year-old son, Amir (Mahan Nasiri). A solution to her financial hardships comes in the form of a marriage proposal from the factory bus driver, Kazem, who is eager to provide. Weighing heavily on Leila’s conscience is one unwavering caveat: as Kazem has a young daughter of Amir’s age, tradition and propriety dictate that Amir cannot share the family home. Under the judgmental eyes of her community and her hostile co-workers, Leila is forced to consider a utilitarian decision for her family that could also fracture it.
