Nousha is a thirty-something woman looking for any means necessary to avoid the arranged marriages her traditional Iranian family pressures upon her. Her parents insist she find a husband as soon as possible, perpetually setting her up with successful Iranian men. But when Nousha stumbles on an atypical match —the free-spirited, bisexual artist Alex—, she can only keep their fun-loving romance a secret for so long. With the pressure to get married and fulfill her parents’ dream of throwing an elaborate wedding celebration for their only daughter, Nousha fears the differences between their opposing families may be too much to overcome.
