Coming from two countries at odds with each other, Iranian-American Leila
(Layla Mohammadi) strives to find balance and embrace her opposing cultures,
while boldly challenging the labels society is so quick to project upon her.
When her family reunites in New York City for her father’s heart transplant,
Leila navigates her relationships from arms length in an effort to keep her
“real” life separate from her family life. However, when her secret is
unceremoniously revealed, so are the distinct parallels between her life and
that of her mother Shireen (Niousha Noor).
