About The Film

"This is our father's house," says Shirin Sar-poulaki, the beloved girl of a trusted, influential man in the old Carpet Market in Bazaar, Haj Ebrahim. Shirin leads a quiet, ordinary life, but when his uncle insists on and convinces her father to agree with some conditions, she begins working in an air travel agency to confront the sweet agonies of her life. She goes to work in her uniform, while her destiny comes to her for the first time. A young American boy comes to the agency to buy a ticket to Shiraz, and that's it: Love in the first sight as portrayed in any fable and fairy tale. The story has just begun; Haj Ebrahim disagrees to give her daughter's hand to a foreigner--especially an American.
