It is the story of a beautiful and determined young woman whose quest for love, freedom and happiness pits her against religion-based doctrines of male superiority and an uncompromisingly misogynistic culture. Born into a wealthy family in the Iranian city of Shiraz in 1972, Somayyeh grows to womanhood as revolution brings a fundamentalist Islamic regime to power and a futile war with neighbouring Iraq rages for eight bloody years. When her marriage is destroyed by her husbands reckless infidelity, Somayyeh struggles to come to grips with the harsh realities of divorce while remaining a devoted mother to her only child.

But her divorce turns out to be a gateway to a new life.
