Synopsis

Set in modern day Tehran, and the UK, the film follows Nasrine and Ali, sister and brother in a comfortable, middle class Iranian home. For Nasrine, Iran is an unyielding place. The rules are clear, and breaking them has consequences. When Nasrine has a run-in with the police, the punishment she receives is more than she bargained for.

At their father’s bidding, Nasrine and Ali set out for the UK, torn about leaving behind their home and all that they know, embarking on a reluctant exile. Still, for Nasrine, there is undeniable excitement about the prospect of starting a new life in the West, and an eagerness for its promise of new freedoms.
