On his day that is first as translator, Parvis is left overrun plus in rips. Handsome Amon (Eidin Jalali) approaches, extending hand of relationship that Parvis grabs. AmonвЂ™s vivacious sis Banafshe (Banafshe Hourmazdi) completes a trio whoever relationship comes immediately, each coping with their very own individual plight.
For Bana, it is her deportation purchase; for Amon, it is their orientation that is sexual for Parvis, it is a disconnect to their cultural identification.
