    • Synopsis
    • The movie is a stirring love drama about two teenagers battle to be together, in a land where your own choice of spouse cannot be taken for granted. Shirin and Soran are secretly sweethearts, waiting for the right occasion to ask for their parent’s permission to get married. When Shirin’s mother dies, her father seeks to find a new wife. His chosen one has one demand for this marriage: Shirin has to marry her son. To be together, Soran and Shirin has evidently no other choice but to escape. Life on the run is however anything but easy. Shirin must manage the city life alone when Soran is sent off to prison – not without risk, in a land where a young woman without a father or a husband by her side is virtually considered to be cold prey …
      Shirin is forced to trust random strangers to manage life without Soran, something that has fatal consequences. Is the love between Shirin and Soran strong enough to handle the brutal reality?
