Synopsis:
Shirin has made a comfortable if solitary life for herself in her adoptive Canada, but her carefully constructed walls begin to crumble when fellow Iranian Leila moves in next door with her young daughter. Both women embrace the freedom they’ve found away from cultural and familial obligations but soon realize that it too has its limits. This nuanced, pathos-filled debut presents an exploration of the complex identity of women as mothers, wives, and friends.
