Set in rural Iran, two young actors, Hossein and Tahereh, star in a movie about a couple who get married after the woman loses her parents in a devastating earthquake. Off screen Hossein falls for and proposes to Tahereh, but the young girl’s family disapproves of her poor and illiterate suitor. To please her family the obedient Tahereh evades Hossein, refusing to reveal her true feelings one way or another. Undaunted, Hossein follows the advice of the film’s director in an effort to uncover how Tahereh really feels.
