The strict and traditional Mr Azizi leads an uneventful family life in an oil town in Southern Iran.Then one day, exasperated by her father's authoritarianism, Setareh announces she is off to Tehran to say farewell to one of her best friends who is leaving Iran for good. Unfortunately, the engagement celebrations of Setareh's younger sister are taking place simultaneously. Despite her father's objections Setareh takes the plane for Tehran. This act of disobedience sets in motion a series of perturbations that upset the calm tranquility of the paterfamilias.
