When sharp science student Asli meets charismatic Saeed in the mid 90's, it's love at first sight. The lovers marry, and Asli swears to be true to Saeed and never betray his secrets.

Their future looks bright, but as the twenty-first century dawns, Saeed makes a decision that will not only shatter Asli's dreams, but shake the whole world to the core.

'A captivating political love story, where all that is pure and good lies in precarious tension with a world gone mad' - Alexandra Heller-Nicholas, AWFJ Women on Film
