A well-to-do Iranian, Haji, arrives in Manhattan from Teheran with his reluctant new bride. Overcome by nostalgia for the old country, his closest friends hold a traditional feast. But a bizarre series of events ends with Haji's death - leaving behind a beautiful, bewildered widow. . . and four zealous suitors. Playing with the tensions of strangers in a strange land, Ghasem Ebrahimian's intriguing first feature is a witty, dark comedy.
