Ava is imprisoned in an unhappy marriage with Ashkan. When the housekeeper disappears – Maryam was Ava’s help in everything – the marital crisis gets worse. Akbari had reached this point in the story when several directors were arrested in Iran. She left Iran, also leaving behind her original vision of the film. She completed it in the United Kingdom, re-titling it From Tehran to London.
