Details

The film traces the intertwining lives of four women - Fakhri (Arita Shahrzad), Zarin (Orsolya Toth), Faezeh (Pegah Ferydoni) and Munis (Shabnam Toloui) - against the turbulent political backdrop of Iran's 1953 coup, in which the CIA helped to overthrow the democratically elected government and reinstate the Shah to power. As turmoil takes over in the streets of Tehran, each of the women seeks to be liberated from her own private predicament.

Fakhri scandalously leaves her husband and buys a magical orchard in the outskirts of the city, and for a while the women find seclusion within its walls - but it is only a matter of time before the world outside makes its mark as Iran's history takes a tragic turn.
