A well-to-do Iranian, Haji, arrives in Manhattan from Teheran with his reluctant new bride. Overcome by nostalgia for the old country, his closest friends hold a traditional feast. But a bizarre series of events ends with Haji's death leaving behind a beautiful, bewildered widow... and four zealous suitors.

Playing with the tensions of strangers in a strange land, Ghasem Ebrahimian's intriguing first feature is a witty, dark comedy.

With Pouran, Ali Azizian, Shahab Navab, Assurbanipal Babila.
